How One Creature Moves Another

After St. Thomas Aquinas


Threefold: angels move, purely spiritual creatures

bodies move

man moves, composed spiritually, & of a corporeal nature


angel acts on an angel

moving the intellect of another by illumination

moving the will


inferior angels

light in the angels is threefold:

of nature, of grace, of glory


grace by the Justifier

light by the Beatifier

illumine the inferior


till Judgment Day

some new things, there is always something,

for superior angels to sing about
