For as the ~ultimate beatitude of man consists in the use 3 1, 12 | would either never attain to beatitude, ~or its beatitude would 4 1, 12 | attain to beatitude, ~or its beatitude would consist in something 5 1, 12 | promised to men as ~their beatitude.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[12] A[ 6 1, 12 | in some degree is great ~beatitude," as Augustine says (De 7 1, 13 | in ~truth. But this name "beatitude" is applied univocally to 8 1, 23 | the angels are capable of beatitude, as well as men. But ~predestination 9 1, 26 | Para. 1/1 - OF THE DIVINE BEATITUDE (FOUR ARTICLES) ~After considering 10 1, 26 | come to treat of the divine beatitude. Concerning this, there 11 1, 26 | of inquiry:~(1) Whether beatitude belongs to God?~(2) In regard 12 1, 26 | Whether He is essentially the beatitude of each of the blessed?~( 13 1, 26 | blessed?~(4) Whether all other beatitude is included in the divine 14 1, 26 | is included in the divine beatitude?~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[26] A[ 15 1, 26 | Thes. Para. 1/1~Whether beatitude belongs to God?~Aquin.: 16 1, 26 | 1/1~OBJ 1: It seems that beatitude does not belong to God. 17 1, 26 | does not belong to God. For beatitude ~according to Boethius ( 18 1, 26 | has composition. Therefore beatitude does not belong to ~God.~ 19 1, 26 | Para. 1/1~OBJ 2: Further, beatitude or happiness is the reward 20 1, 26 | Therefore neither does beatitude.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[26] A[ 21 1, 26 | Para. 1/1~I answer that, Beatitude belongs to God in a very 22 1, 26 | to be meant by the term beatitude than the ~perfect good of 23 1, 26 | possess intelligence. Whence beatitude ~belongs to God in the highest 24 1, 26 | belongs as an accident to beatitude or happiness to be ~the 25 1, 26 | far as anyone attains to beatitude; even as to ~be the term 26 1, 26 | not ~begotten; so He has beatitude, although not acquired by 27 1, 26 | respect to His ~intellect. For beatitude is the highest good. But 28 1, 26 | De Hebdom.). Therefore ~beatitude also is said to be in God 29 1, 26 | Para. 1/1~OBJ 2: Further, Beatitude implies the notion of end. 30 1, 26 | also is the good. Therefore beatitude is said to ~be in God with 31 1, 26 | xxii), it would seem that beatitude is said ~to be in God in 32 1, 26 | Para. 1/1~I answer that, Beatitude, as stated above (A[1]), 33 1, 26 | everything. ~Whence the beatitude of every intellectual nature 34 1, 26 | our understanding them. Beatitude ~must therefore be assigned 35 1, 26 | the assimilation ~to His beatitude.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[26] A[ 36 1, 26 | This argument proves that beatitude belongs to God; not ~that 37 1, 26 | belongs to God; not ~that beatitude pertains essentially to 38 1, 26 | 1/1~Reply OBJ 2: Since beatitude is a good, it is the object 39 1, 26 | of understanding, divine beatitude precedes the act of the ~ 40 1, 26 | the intellect; ~and thus beatitude is to be found in an act 41 1, 26 | 1/1~Whether God is the beatitude of each of the blessed?~ 42 1, 26 | It seems that God is the beatitude of each of the blessed. 43 1, 26 | it is ~of the essence of beatitude that it should be the supreme 44 1, 26 | supreme good, it seems ~that beatitude is nothing else but God 45 1, 26 | Para. 1/1~OBJ 2: Further, beatitude is the last end of the rational 46 1, 26 | only to God. Therefore the ~beatitude of every blessed is God 47 1, 26 | 1/1~On the contrary, The beatitude of one is greater than that 48 1, 26 | greater than God. Therefore beatitude is something different ~ 49 1, 26 | 1/1~I answer that, The beatitude of an intellectual nature 50 1, 26 | to understand. If, then, beatitude be considered on the side 51 1, 26 | object, God is the only beatitude; for everyone is blessed 52 1, 26 | the act of understanding, beatitude is ~a created thing in beatified 53 1, 26 | 1 Para. 1/1~Reply OBJ 1: Beatitude, as regards its object, 54 1, 26 | thing itself; but created beatitude is the end, as the use, 55 1, 26 | Para. 1/1~Whether all other beatitude is included in the beatitude 56 1, 26 | beatitude is included in the beatitude of God?~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[ 57 1, 26 | It seems that the divine beatitude does not embrace all other ~ 58 1, 26 | God. Therefore the divine beatitude does not embrace all other ~ 59 1, 26 | OBJ 2: Further, a certain beatitude, according to some, consists 60 1, 26 | incorporeal.

The reason of this is, 72 1, 58 | consists in such vision; and beatitude does not ~consist in habit, 73 1, 60 | beatifies all with supernatural ~beatitude, He is love with the love 74 1, 62 | Were the angels created in beatitude?~(2) Did they need grace 75 1, 62 | 4) Did they merit their beatitude?~(5) Did they at once enter 76 1, 62 | they at once enter into beatitude after merit?~(6) Did they 77 1, 62 | the angels were created in beatitude?~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[62] A[ 78 1, 62 | the angels were created in beatitude.

But the angels were not 85 1, 62 | the angels ~were not in beatitude from their creation.~Aquin.: 86 1, 62 | answer that, By the name of beatitude is understood the ultimate ~ 87 1, 62 | this is in a measure called beatitude or happiness. ~Hence Aristotle ( 88 1, 62 | that, as regards this first beatitude, ~which the angel could 89 1, 62 | angel does not acquire such beatitude by any ~progressive action, 90 1, 62 | creation that ~ultimate beatitude which is beyond the power 91 1, 62 | of nature; because such ~beatitude is no part of their nature, 92 1, 62 | 1 Para. 1/1~Reply OBJ 1: Beatitude is there taken for that 93 1, 62 | that the angel reached to ~beatitude. If, then, he had needed 94 1, 62 | to ~God, as the object of beatitude. For, as was observed above ( 95 1, 62 | essence, wherein the ultimate beatitude ~of the rational creature 96 1, 62 | will directed towards such beatitude, except it be moved thereto 97 1, 62 | will be turned to such ~beatitude, except by the help of grace.~ 98 1, 62 | so far ~as God bestows beatitude by the vision of His essence.~ 99 1, 62 | turned to his ultimate ~beatitude is difficult for man, both 100 1, 62 | God is that which merits beatitude; and for this ~there is 101 1, 62 | bears the same relation to beatitude as the seedlike ~form in 102 1, 62 | Whether an angel merits his beatitude?~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[62] A[ 103 1, 62 | angel did not merit his beatitude. For ~merit arises from 104 1, 62 | he did not thereby ~merit beatitude.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[62] A[ 105 1, 62 | beatified angel merited his beatitude, he did so ~either before 106 1, 62 | angel did not merit his beatitude.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[62] A[ 107 1, 62 | 4~I answer that, Perfect beatitude is natural only to God, 108 1, 62 | because ~existence and beatitude are one and the same thing 109 1, 62 | and the same thing in Him. Beatitude, ~however, is not of the 110 1, 62 | 12], AA[4],5), ultimate beatitude exceeds both ~the angelic 111 1, 62 | and ~angel merited their beatitude.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[62] A[ 112 1, 62 | in saying that he merited beatitude: as ~also, if one were to 113 1, 62 | grace before entering upon beatitude, it would then ~have to 114 1, 62 | have to be said that he had beatitude without merit, even as we 115 1, 62 | quite foreign to the idea of beatitude; which ~conveys the notion 116 1, 62 | maintained, that the angels merit beatitude by their present ~ministrations, 117 1, 62 | ministrations, while in beatitude. This is quite contrary, 118 1, 62 | end, is the fruition of beatitude. Even this view will not 119 1, 62 | possible for anyone to enjoy beatitude, and at the same ~time to 120 1, 62 | ere he was ~admitted to beatitude, and that by such grace 121 1, 62 | by such grace he merited beatitude.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[62] A[ 122 1, 62 | An angel did not merit beatitude by natural movement ~towards 123 1, 62 | Whether the angel obtained beatitude immediately after one act 124 1, 62 | the angel did not possess beatitude instantly ~after one act 125 1, 62 | Consequently, if the ~angel merited beatitude by one act of his will, 126 1, 62 | creation; and so, if their beatitude was not ~retarded, then 127 1, 62 | then the angels were in beatitude in the first instant.~Aquin.: 128 1, 62 | merit in order to reach ~beatitude.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[62] A[ 129 1, 62 | are ordained alike for ~beatitude: consequently equality with 130 1, 62 | it has merit deserving ~beatitude, enters at once into beatitude, 131 1, 62 | beatitude, enters at once into beatitude, unless there be some obstacle. ~ 132 1, 62 | charity, had the merit of beatitude. Therefore, since there 133 1, 62 | he passed at once into beatitude by only one ~meritorious 134 1, 62 | charity, whereby he merited beatitude. The reason whereof is because 135 1, 62 | merit the angel secured ~beatitude. Now the merit of beatitude 136 1, 62 | beatitude. Now the merit of beatitude in angel and man alike can 137 1, 62 | act; because man merits beatitude by every act informed by ~ 138 1, 62 | the ~angel for securing beatitude.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[62] A[ 139 1, 62 | their act which merited ~beatitude could not be in them simultaneously 140 1, 62 | simultaneously with the act of beatitude, ~which is fruition; since 141 1, 62 | which the angel merited beatitude, ~and in another was beatified.~ 142 1, 62 | the angel is brought to beatitude.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[62] A[ 143 1, 62 | angel are alike ordained for beatitude or grace. ~But man does 144 1, 62 | graces and ~perfection of beatitude were bestowed on the angels 145 1, 62 | for attaining grace and beatitude, so ~likewise the grades 146 1, 62 | gifts of ~grace and fuller beatitude, whom He made of a higher 147 1, 62 | and love. Therefore, in beatitude, natural knowledge and love ~ 148 1, 62 | operation remains. But ~beatitude does not destroy nature, 149 1, 62 | manifest that nature is to beatitude as first to ~second; because 150 1, 62 | first to ~second; because beatitude is superadded to nature. 151 1, 62 | nature must be preserved in ~beatitude: and in like manner the 152 1, 62 | preserved in the ~act of beatitude.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[62] A[ 153 1, 62 | opposed to the ~perfection of beatitude, but underlies it; as the 154 1, 62 | All things which make up beatitude are sufficient of ~themselves. 155 1, 62 | natural ~gifts; because no beatitude is self-subsisting, except 156 1, 62 | self-subsisting, except the uncreated ~beatitude.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[62] A[ 157 1, 62 | was said ~above (A[7]), beatitude does not do away with nature. 158 1, 62 | the will of the angel in ~beatitude does not cease to be rational. 159 1, 62 | this is, ~because their beatitude consists in seeing God through 160 1, 62 | such as is the union of beatitude, ~it is rendered unable 161 1, 62 | beatified angels advance in beatitude?~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[62] A[ 162 1, 62 | beatified angels can advance in beatitude. ~For charity is the principle 163 1, 62 | increases, the reward of beatitude increases. Therefore the 164 1, 62 | angels can progress in beatitude.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[62] A[ 165 1, 62 | thereby, ~nor to advance to beatitude. It remains, then, that 166 1, 62 | merit, and can advance in beatitude.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[62] A[ 167 1, 62 | in the ~highest degree of beatitude. Therefore if unable to 168 1, 62 | wayfarers travelling towards beatitude, they are ~already in possession 169 1, 62 | already in possession of beatitude. Consequently the beatified 170 1, 62 | neither merit nor advance in beatitude.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[62] A[ 171 1, 62 | own power attain to its beatitude, which consists in the vision 172 1, 62 | moved by God towards its beatitude. Therefore there must be 173 1, 62 | infinite degrees. And as beatitude ~consists in vision, so 174 1, 62 | by God to the end of its ~beatitude, that from God's predestination 175 1, 62 | a ~determinate degree of beatitude. Consequently, when that 176 1, 62 | end; and so the merit of beatitude is useful. ~Secondly, as 177 1, 62 | they are a part of their beatitude; for to pour out acquired ~ 178 1, 62 | in the highest ~degree of beatitude, yet, in his own regard 179 1, 62 | from the ~virtue of their beatitude, rather than merit it.~ 180 1, 63 | the object of supernatural beatitude, comes of ~infused love, 181 1, 63 | desiring, as his last end of beatitude, ~something which he could 182 1, 63 | appetite away from supernatural beatitude, which is attained by God' 183 1, 63 | he sought to have ~final beatitude of his own power, whereas 184 1, 63 | grace, he thereby ~merited beatitude. But with the angels the 185 1, 63 | placed an impediment to their beatitude, thereby destroying their ~ 186 1, 63 | they were deprived of the beatitude ~which they had merited.~ 187 1, 63 | since the angels ~attain beatitude by one meritorious act, 188 1, 63 | would at ~once have received beatitude after that first instant, 189 1, 63 | once placed a barrier to beatitude, he ~would have been confirmed 190 1, 63 | that it might ~attain to beatitude.

But with the angels the 316 1, 64 | placed an impediment to their beatitude, thereby destroying their ~ 317 1, 64 | they were deprived of the beatitude ~which they had merited.~ 318 1, 64 | since the angels ~attain beatitude by one meritorious act, 319 1, 64 | would at ~once have received beatitude after that first instant, 320 1, 64 | once placed a barrier to beatitude, he ~would have been confirmed 321 1, 64 | that it might ~attain to beatitude. If therefore the highest 322 1, 64 | might attain their ultimate beatitude of their own ~natural powers; 323 1, 65 | angels and saints of true beatitude, ~because everlasting stability 324 1, 65 | the very nature of true beatitude; ~hence it is termed "life 325 1, 65 | judgment day: and that the beatitude of the ~saints is likewise 326 1, 72 | universe, is the perfect ~beatitude of the Saints at the consummation 327 1, 72 | Now for the attaining of beatitude two things are required, 328 1, 72 | above, the perfection of beatitude will be ~at the end of the 329 1, 76 | because he can acquire ~beatitude.

Now it is clear that man ~ 334 1, 93 | willingly be turned away from beatitude, since naturally and ~necessarily 335 1, 94 | with the enjoyment of final beatitude. Hence faith and ~hope could 336 1, 96 | that from its fulness of ~beatitude, there redounds to the body 337 1, 99 | righteousness through the beatitude ~given by the clear vision 338 1, 101 | are similarly ordered to beatitude. But ~the angels from the 339 1, 101 | fitting abode for the state of beatitude, which is ~endowed with 340 1, 101 | stability. Thus the abode of beatitude ~was suited to the very 341 1, 101 | man ~in regard only to his beatitude. Wherefore he was not placed 342 1, 101 | in the state of his final beatitude.~Aquin.: SMT FP Q[102] A[ 343 1, 105 | angels possess now the same beatitude which we hope to obtain. 344 1, 107 | but ~only one; because the beatitude of all is to cleave to God 345 1, 111 | But the whole of ~their beatitude consists in the contemplation 346 1, 111 | if they were ~sent, their beatitude would be lessened; which 347 1, 111 | ii), "though he has ~lost beatitude, still he has retained a 348 1, 116 | merit a higher degree of beatitude than that ~possessed by 349 2, 2 | cause. And therefore man's ~beatitude depends, as on its cause, 350 2, 67 | that it has in common with ~beatitude, viz. knowledge: and there 351 2, 69 | contemplative life: yet no beatitude is assigned to the act of ~ 352 2, 69 | seems to ~correspond to the beatitude of mercy: yet nothing is 353 2, 69 | it must be observed that beatitude has been held to consist ~ 354 2, 69 | different relations to future ~beatitude, by hoping for which we 355 2, 69 | is an obstacle to future ~beatitude; while happiness of the 356 2, 69 | a disposition of future ~beatitude; and contemplative happiness, 357 2, 69 | very essence ~of future beatitude, and, if imperfect, is a 358 2, 69 | altogether. Hence the first beatitude is: ~"Blessed are the poor 359 2, 69 | by them: hence the second beatitude is: "Blessed ~are the meek." 360 2, 69 | A[3]]; hence the third beatitude is: "Blessed are ~they that 361 2, 69 | appetite.

And therefore, since beatitude implies ~something ultimate, 367 2, 69 | we must refer this to the beatitude of mourning: when we read, " 368 2, 69 | the reward of the seventh ~beatitude. The same applies to all 369 2, 69 | Reply OBJ 5: The eighth beatitude is a confirmation and declaration 370 2, 69 | them. Hence the eighth ~beatitude corresponds, in a way, to 371 2, 69 | first and of the eighth beatitude.

Therefore the ~fruits of 376 2, 70 | this is the very nature of beatitude, as stated above (Q[3], 377 2, 70 | 1]). Therefore fruit and beatitude have the same nature, and ~ 378 2, 70 | More is required for a beatitude than for a fruit. ~Because 379 2, 70 | delightful; whereas for a beatitude, it must be something perfect 380 2, 70 | nowise differs from future beatitude.

Now the mystery of Christ' 392 2, 2 | way ~by which men obtain beatitude; for it is written (Acts 393 2, 4 | has no reference to the beatitude we hope for.~Aquin.: SMT 394 2, 8 | Para. 1/1~Whether the sixth beatitude, "Blessed are the clean 395 2, 8 | would seem that the sixth beatitude, "Blessed are the clean 396 2, 8 | Therefore the aforesaid beatitude does ~not respond to the 397 2, 8 | Therefore the aforesaid beatitude is related to the virtue 398 2, 8 | 8]).
