With humor and ease, Father Michael Gaitley, MIC, deftly unlocks the "one thing," the key to the Church's wisdom, and the greatest mystery of the Catholic faith: the Most Holy Trinity. Far from being a scholarly or academic read, The "One Thing" is Three makes deep theology accessible to every-day Catholics. What's more, it makes even what's familiar or forgotten appear in a way that's new, exciting, and relevant. Thus, The "One Thing" is Three brings its readers a unique and powerful experience of the faith. It's the perfect book for the Year of Faith.
"Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC, has a holy passion not only to contemplate the truth and beauty of the Trinity but to communicate it, which he does here with practical wisdom and spiritual insight. Readers will gain a new understanding and appreciation of the mysteries of faith, based on what the Church teaches about the highest and holiest Mystery of all: 'The communion of the Holy Trinity is the source and criterion of truth in every relationship' (CCC, n. 2845). Both inspiring and illuminating, I highly recommend this book."

I have carried it everywhere these past few weeks: to Mass almost every day; to Adoration; it even went to Houston with me last week-end when I moved my daughter there. However before I reread it, I will be taking Fr. Gaitley's recommendations about the writings of Sts. John Paul II and John Henry Newman. Maybe in that way,|
