After all of that articulation of the nature of the Trinity, the conclusion, repeated again, is this:

The Church confesses the Trinity to be a mystery beyond the comprehension of man.

If more were to accept the truth of this last point (on many matters of doctrine) I dare say there would be far less division in the Body of Christ.

I do not believe this to be theological laziness; rather, appropriate humility.
It is a hard won and not easily asserted denominational doctrinal position, not simply the throwing of hands up into the air in frustration.

Sometimes faith manifests best as a simple, “I don’t fully understand. And yet, I believe.”
