Story: St. Augustine - so the story goes - was struggling to understand the doctrine of the Trinity. So he decided to go for a walk on the beach, where he saw a little boy digging a hole in the sand with a seashell. The boy then ran off to the ocean, filling the shell, and rushed back to pour it into the hole he had made.

“What are you doing, my little man,” St. Augustine asked.

“I’m trying to put the ocean into this hole”, the boy replied.

Augustine suddenly realised that this was precisely was he was trying to do…to fit the great mysteries of God into his mind.
