The first divine man.

In one of messages of the Virgin Mary given to Don Stefano Gobbi, of the Marian Movement of Priests, we can read: "333 indicated once, that is to say, for the first time, expresses the mystery of the unity of God. 333 indicated twice, that is to say, for the second time, indicates the two natures, that of the divine and the human, united in the divine Person of Jesus Christ, 333 indicated thrice, that is to say, for the third time, indicates the mystery of the Three Divine Persons, that is to say, it expresses the mystery of the Most Holy Trinity. Thus the number, 333, expressed one, two and three times, expresses the principal mysteries of the Catholic faith which are: (1) The Unity and the Trinity of God, (2) the incarnation, the passion and death, and the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ."

In symbolism, the addition of a unit to a devoted number (example 8, number of the infinity, 7+1, 7 representing of what is cyclic) means the superabundant plenitude, or the exceptional properties of the added number. On the other hand, the subtraction of a unit from a totality is often a cause of misfortune or a sinister portent: 6 = 7-1, where 6 recall the number of the beast in the Revelation, 666. There are reasons to believe that the subtraction means what is truncated, what lacks a quantity, of a note, one essential duration to have its normal plenitude, to reach its goal, to succeed. Thus the name of Caesar in Greek, being 332 (kaisar = 20+1+10+200+1+100 = 332) is lower by a unit than the number representing the divinity. Some had been popular beliefs of the period of the Roman Empire, the "Caesar" have never been divine as it was claimed. They were even associates later to the number 666 of the Revelation of John.
