Therefore, ~a vow is not an act of religion.~ 99 2, 86 | to none but God. But ~a vow is made not only to God, 100 2, 86 | superiors, to whom religious vow obedience when they make 101 2, 86 | profession. Therefore, a vow is not an act of religion.~ 102 2, 86 | or latria. Therefore, a vow is an act of latria or religion.~ 103 2, 86 | said above (AA[1],2) that a vow is ~a promise made to God, 104 2, 86 | promise is ~made.

First, because to vow, as ~stated above (A[5]) 132 2, 86 | done in fulfilment of a vow, since thus ~they belong 133 2, 86 | 3/3~Thirdly, because a vow fixes the will on the good 134 2, 86 | necessity ~resulting from a vow is caused by the immobility 135 2, 86 | necessity ~resulting from a vow, in those who are well disposed, 136 2, 86 | cxxcii): "Repent not of thy vow: thou shouldst ~rather rejoice 137 2, 86 | after one has taken ~the vow, the will to fulfil it remaining 138 2, 86 | it were done without the vow, since the fulfilment of ~ 139 2, 86 | since the fulfilment of ~a vow is an act of religion which 140 2, 86 | will of one who makes a vow: for the latter ~has bound 141 2, 86 | Thes. Para. 1/1~Whether a vow is solemnized by the reception 142 2, 86 | 1: It would seem that a vow is not solemnized by the 143 2, 86 | stated above ~(A[1]), a vow is a promise made to God. 144 2, 86 | proper circumstance of a vow.~Aquin.: SMT SS Q[88] A[ 145 2, 86 | may ~be the subject of a vow, which have no connection 146 2, 86 | belong to the condition of a vow.~Aquin.: SMT SS Q[88] A[ 147 2, 86 | OBJ 3: Further, a solemn vow seems to be the same as 148 2, 86 | be the same as a public vow. Now ~many other vows may 149 2, 86 | the effect of ~a solemn vow, as we shall state further 150 2, 86 | of their ~kindred. Now a vow is a promise made to God: 151 2, 86 | the solemnization ~of a vow consists in something spiritual 152 2, 86 | another. In like manner a vow is solemnized when a man 153 2, 86 | bless them." Hence a solemn vow is more binding with ~God 154 2, 86 | with ~God than a simple vow, and he who breaks a solemn 155 2, 86 | and he who breaks a solemn vow sins more ~grievously. When 156 2, 86 | it is said that a simple vow is no less binding than 157 2, 86 | less binding than a ~solemn vow, this refers to the fact 158 2, 86 | some special fast, such a vow ~is not competent to be 159 2, 86 | solemnized, but only such as the vow whereby a man ~entirely 160 2, 86 | are included under this vow as under a universal.~Aquin.: 161 2, 86 | Hence the publicity of a vow differs from its solemnization.~ 162 2, 86 | is a lesser ~bond than a vow whereby one is under an 163 2, 86 | 30:4-6) that "if a woman vow any ~thing . . . being in 164 2, 86 | she ~is not bound by the vow, unless her father consent: 165 2, 86 | cannot bind ~themselves by vow.~Aquin.: SMT SS Q[88] A[ 166 2, 86 | As stated above (A[1]), a vow is a promise made to God. ~ 167 2, 86 | bind himself firmly by a vow in those matters wherein 168 2, 86 | conditions necessary for a vow are not ~altogether ensured, 169 2, 86 | regard to binding himself by vow to enter religion, or with 170 2, 86 | these matters he cannot vow ~anything that shall be 171 2, 86 | cannot bind himself by vow to enter religion, since 172 2, 86 | occupy him with something, no vow of a religious stands ~without 173 2, 86 | superior, as neither does the vow of a girl ~while in (her 174 2, 86 | Reply OBJ 4: Although the vow of one who is subject to 175 2, 86 | sin by vowing; because his vow is understood to contain 176 2, 86 | children can bind themselves by vow to enter religion?~Aquin.: 177 2, 86 | cannot bind themselves by vow to ~enter religion.

It is ~less to have a vow commuted than to be dispensed 196 2, 86 | from keeping it. But a ~vow cannot be commuted, according 197 2, 86 | the Lord, if anyone shall vow, shall be holy, and cannot 198 2, 86 | Now the fulfilment of a vow is a matter of the natural ~ 199 2, 86 | Further, the obligation of a vow is based on the fidelity 200 2, 86 | grant a dispensation ~from a vow.~Aquin.: SMT SS Q[88] A[ 201 2, 86 | The dispensation from a vow is to be taken in the same ~ 202 2, 86 | manner a person who takes a vow makes a law for himself 203 2, 86 | which is the matter of a vow, as ~is clear from what 204 2, 86 | case, to decide that the vow is not to be observed.

Consequently when an ~ecclesiastical 214 2, 86 | dispenses someone from a vow, he does not ~dispense him 215 2, 86 | would be wrong or useless to vow, or which would be an ~obstacle 216 2, 86 | the dispensation from that vow ~would conduce. Hence the 217 2, 86 | the dispensation from a vow is not contrary to the ~ 218 2, 86 | dispensed from a solemn vow of continency?~Aquin.: SMT 219 2, 86 | dispensed from a solemn ~vow of continency.

Hence Augustine says (Ep. 332 2, 183 | Since you have taken the vow, you have already ~bound 333 2, 183 | Before you were bound by ~the vow, you were free to submit." 334 2, 183 | Nevertheless the obligation of the vow remains virtually, so that 335 2, 184 | should be the matter of a vow?~(7) Of the sufficiency 336 2, 184 | 1~OBJ 4: Further, if the vow of obedience were requisite 337 2, 184 | from all venery by their vow of ~continence.
