Trinity and Catholicity

The teaching of the church is unified, though diverse. The Spirit of truth (Jn. 14:17) unites us with Christ (the Way, the Truth, and the Life). The Spirit leads us into all truth (Jn. 16:13) and provides unity (Jn. 17:20-21). Thus, the teaching of the Church is Trinitarian, which does not mean monolithic or stultified. Within the Trinity, there is a wondrous play of unity and diversity. We should delight similarly in the unity and diversity of Christian tradition.
