Unity in triplicate ...

... Trinity and mystery. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Of course, there is always the story of Augustine walking along the seashore and encountering a child carrying water from the ocean and pouring it into a hole he had dug in the sand. When Augustine asks the child what he is doing, the child tells him he's going to pour the entire ocean into the hole. Augustine explains to the child why that would be impossible. Whereupon the child tells Augustine that he has as good a chance of doing it as Augustine does of fully understanding the Trinity.
