McCabe on the Trinity

Think for a moment of a group of three or four intelligent adults relaxing together in one of those conversations that have really taken off.  They are being witty and responding quickly to each other—what in Ireland they call ‘the Crack’.  Serious ideas may be at issue, but no one is being serious.  Nobody is being pompous or solemn (nobody is preaching).  There are flights of fancy.  There are jokes and puns and irony and mimicry and disrespect and self-parody.  Now a 7-year old is in the room, completely baffled by it all…Now this child is like us when we hear about the Trinity.
