essence or nature

    The Trinity is a term used to describe God. I found the following excerpt on www.vatican which may help to start your enquiry.

    252 TheChurch uses (I) the term "substance" (rendered also at times by
    "essence" or "nature") to designate the divine being in its unity, (II) the term
    "person" or "hypostasis" to designate the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in the
    real distinction among them, and (III) the term "relation" to designate the fact
    that their distinction lies in the relationship of each to the others.

    You may then need to use this forum to look up each term individually.

    This may be in part a language question, and we'll all be happy to help you with that part, but it's also a theological question. You may need a site on Christian theology to understand fully what this concept is about.
