The artwork of God the Father is an original illustration by artist Jason Koltuniak for a scriptural counting book for children, Counting on Faith.12 No one can question what you have done or challenge your judgment. 13 All things are under your care, and there is no other god to whom you must justify your decisions. 14 No king or ruler on earth can accuse you of punishing those people unfairly. 15 You are righteous, and you rule everything righteously.

God created the world in this order: day and night, sky, earth, sun and moon and stars, fish and birds, and animals and humans.18 I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory about to be revealed to us. 19 For all creation awaits with eager expectation for the revelation of the children of God.

When Jesus rose from the dead, his wounds remained as marks of salvation for all believers.There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do: by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and to deal with sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, so that the just requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

In this captivating image, by artist Jason Koltuniak, Thomas the Apostle places his hand in the pierced side of the Resurrected Christ.24 But Thomas (who was called the Twin), one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands, and put my finger in the mark of the nails and my hand in his side, I will not believe.”

The image of Jesus Christ offering His heart to the world is an expression of sacrificial love.25 At that time Jesus said, "I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to little ones; 26 yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. 27 All things have been handed over to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him."

The Sacred Heart of Jesus is a Eucharistic Heart because His Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity becomes the food of eternal salvation.51 "I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats of this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh." 52 The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?" 53 So Jesus said to them, "Very truly, I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you."

The Most Holy Trinity is the three Divine Persons of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit as one Sovereign God.11 Finally, brothers and sisters, farewell. Put things in order, listen to my appeal, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you. 12 Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the saints greet you.

When Jesus Christ sent the Holy Spirit from Heaven, the Holy Spirit appeared as tongues of fire.When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability.

This painting of Jesus ascending into Heaven is by John Singleton Copley (1738-1815), and it is in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts.12 After the priests had assembled with the elders, they devised a plan to give a large sum of money to the soldiers, 13 telling them, “You must say, ‘His disciples came by night and stole him away while we were asleep.’ 14 If this comes to the governor’s ears, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.” 15 So they took the money and did as they were directed. And this story is still told among the Jews to this day.

The Spirit of Truth is the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.15 “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever. 17 This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, because he abides with you, and he will be in you.
