In the video below, Fr. Robert Barron explains how the Church fits into and serves the Trinity. The Jew, Muslim, or deist prays “outside of God.” When we make the sign of the cross, we open up the Divine persons. The Father sent his Son to us, and we live in the spirit, this spirit being the love which connects the Father and the Son. In the liturgy we address the Father as we stand with the Son, and are thereby drawn into the life of the Holy Spirit.
