Now the angels, in ~their 125 2, 5 | had their eyes opened to contemplation, since "they saw ~things 126 2, 5 | seemingly had ~his eyes open to contemplation; for Hugh St. Victor says ( 127 2, 5 | clearly present ~to their contemplation." Therefore there was no 128 2, 5 | by reason of the manifest contemplation that they had of Divine ~ 129 2, 5 | it may be said that the ~contemplation which removes the need of 130 2, 5 | need of faith is heavenly contemplation, ~whereby the supernatural 131 2, 5 | angels did ~not possess this contemplation before they were confirmed, 132 2, 5 | before he sinned: yet their contemplation was of a higher order than ~ 133 2, 9 | Hence ~beatitude relating to contemplation is not ascribed to knowledge, 134 2, 14 | withdrawn ~from this subtle contemplation: wherefore the unclean can 135 2, 14 | that they hinder the mind's contemplation all the more.~ 136 2, 38 | mind very much from the contemplation of Divine things, the praise 137 2, 43 | Moral. vi, 37) that "in contemplation we ~seek the Beginning which 138 2, 43 | to direct us not only in ~contemplation but also in action.~Aquin.: 139 2, 43 | wisdom belongs first of all contemplation ~which is the vision of 140 2, 43 | rectitude of judgment in the contemplation and ~consultation of Divine 141 2, 43 | by some, whether in the contemplation of Divine ~things or in 142 2, 43 | wisdom, both as to ~the contemplation of Divine things (by both 143 2, 44 | to the precepts about the contemplation of ~truth, of which we have 144 2, 45 | wisdom consists chiefly in ~contemplation.
