St. Augustine and the Little Boy At the Beach

Once, St. Augustine was walking along the beach, contemplating the Holy Trinity, when he came upon a little boy playing. The boy had dug a small hole in the sand and was using a little cup to put seawater into it.

"What are you doing?" St. Augustine asked.

"I am going to pour all the sea into the hole I have dug," the boy replied.

"But you'll never be able to get the whole sea into such a small hole," the saint replied with a smile.

"And neither will you be able to get the Trinity into that mind of yours," the boy answered, then disappeared.

Have a wondrous Solemnity of the Holy Trinity!
