And since a minister 101 2, 170 | since a minister is like an ~instrument, prophetic revelation, which 102 2, 171 | by ~the Holy Ghost, as an instrument that is deficient in regard 103 2, 171 | prophet's mind is a defective instrument, ~as stated above, even 104 2, 175 | the human tongue as of an instrument; ~but He it is Who perfects 105 2, 176 | from working through a dead instrument, as a man ~through a stick. 106 2, 184 | by means of wealth as an ~instrument, as stated (ad 4). Wherefore 107 2, 186 | virtue of another, acts as an instrument. ~And a minister is like 108 2, 186 | minister is like an "animated instrument," as the Philosopher says ~( 109 2, 186 | while poverty is like an instrument or exercise ~for the attainment 110 2, 186 | not for being a greater instrument, ~but for being more adapted 111 3, 2 | 1/1~OBJ 4: Further, an instrument accrues accidentally. But 112 3, 2 | the human nature ~was the instrument of the Godhead in Christ, 113 3, 2 | the flesh of Christ is the instrument of the ~Godhead." Therefore 114 3, 2 | they said the man was the instrument of the Word of God; ~fourthly, " 115 3, 2 | everything that is assumed as an instrument pertains to ~the hypostasis 116 3, 2 | hypostasis from being as an instrument, even as the body of man 117 3, 2 | by the ~Word merely as an instrument, and not into the unity 118 3, 2 | the Son of God, ~but His instrument. Hence Cyril says (Epist. 119 3, 2 | assumed ~for the office of an instrument, but as God truly humanized," 120 3, 2 | human nature in Christ is an instrument ~belonging to the unity 121 3, 7 | Further, what operates as an instrument does not need a habit for ~ 122 3, 7 | nature in Christ was "as the instrument of the Godhead," as ~Damascene 123 3, 7 | humanity of Christ is the instrument of the ~Godhead - not, indeed, 124 3, 7 | not, indeed, an inanimate instrument, which nowise acts, but 125 3, 7 | merely acted upon; but an instrument animated by a rational soul, 126 3, 8 | inasmuch as His manhood is the instrument of His Godhead. And hence 127 3, 13 | secondly, as it is the instrument of the Word of God, ~personally 128 3, 13 | of Christ as ~it is the instrument of the Word united to Him, 129 3, 13 | the soul of Christ, as the instrument of the ~Word, but not in 130 3, 13 | soul may be viewed as an ~instrument united in person to God' 131 3, 13 | properly attributed to the instrument, but to ~the principal agent, 132 3, 13 | own power, except as the instrument of the ~Godhead, as was 133 3, 15 | and is, as it were, its instrument, and then the operation, 134 3, 18 | 1/1~OBJ 2: Further, an instrument is not moved by its own 135 3, 18 | nature of Christ was the instrument of ~His Godhead. Hence the 136 3, 18 | OBJ 2: It is proper to an instrument to be moved by the principal ~ 137 3, 18 | nature. For an ~inanimate instrument, as an axe or a saw, is 138 3, 18 | corporeal movement; but an instrument animated by a sensitive 139 3, 18 | horse by its rider; and an ~instrument animated with a rational 140 3, 18 | servant being like ~an animate instrument, as the Philosopher says ( 141 3, 18 | nature of ~Christ was the instrument of the Godhead, and was 142 3, 19 | nature in Christ was the instrument of ~the Divine, as was said 143 3, 19 | of ~the operation of its instrument; and in the same way the 144 3, 19 | the Divine Nature, as an instrument shares in ~the operation 145 3, 19 | Para. 1/1~Reply OBJ 2: The instrument is said to act through being 146 3, 19 | hence the action of ~the instrument as instrument is not distinct 147 3, 19 | action of ~the instrument as instrument is not distinct from the 148 3, 19 | Christ's human nature, as the instrument of ~the Godhead, is not 149 3, 25 | as Christ's cross was the instrument of His passion and ~death, 150 3, 34 | work through the Son as an instrument, which is ~both mover and 151 3, 34 | humanity of Christ is as the instrument ~of the Godhead, as stated 152 3, 42 | of their years ~into an instrument of wickedness, they should 153 3, 43 | the human nature is ~the instrument of the Divine action, and 154 3, 48 | Christ's humanity is the "instrument of ~the Godhead," as stated 155 3, 49 | endured the Passion, ~is the instrument of the Godhead, so that 156 3, 49 | nevertheless His ~flesh is the instrument of the Godhead; and hence 157 3, 49 | the flesh is united ~as an instrument: and according to this power 158 3, 49 | while the body is ~the instrument of the meritorious work. 159 3, 49 | suffering, and was thereby the instrument of His merit.~Aquin.: SMT 160 3, 50 | corporeal; but the body was the ~instrument of the Godhead united to 161 3, 56 | is not ~restricted to one instrument determinately, nevertheless 162 3, 56 | since it works ~through this instrument, such instrument causes 163 3, 56 | through this instrument, such instrument causes the effect. So, then, 164 3, 56 | again, is as it were the instrument of His ~Godhead, and works 165 3, 59 | in so far as it is ~the instrument of the soul. Therefore reward 166 3, 59 | body save as the soul's instrument. Therefore no other Judgment 167 3, 62 | effect is not likened to the instrument but to the principal ~agent: 168 3, 62 | is, properly speaking, an instrument by which someone ~works: 169 3, 62 | Para. 1/1~Reply OBJ 2: An instrument has a twofold action; one 170 3, 62 | in so far as it is the ~instrument of an art. But it does not 171 3, 62 | thereby, inasmuch as it is the instrument of the Divine power, ~cleanses 172 3, 62 | but understood as the ~instrument of some work to be done, 173 3, 62 | its ~subject through the instrument; not so that it be in each 174 3, 62 | is proportionate to the ~instrument: and consequently it stands 175 3, 62 | power of anything, as the instrument to the principal agent. 176 3, 62 | principal agent. For ~an instrument, as stated above (A[1]), 177 3, 62 | instrumental power accrues to an instrument ~through its being moved 178 3, 62 | after the manner of an instrument. Now an instrument is twofold. 179 3, 62 | of an instrument. Now an instrument is twofold. the one, ~separate, 180 3, 62 | Moreover, the separate instrument is moved by means of the 181 3, 62 | by means of the united ~instrument, as a stick by the hand. 182 3, 62 | humanity is as a ~united instrument, whereas the sacrament is 183 3, 62 | sacrament is as a separate instrument. ~Consequently, the saving 184 3, 63 | a ~minister is a kind of instrument, as the Philosopher says ( 185 3, 63 | 1), and the nature of an instrument as such is to be ~moved 186 3, 64 | principal agent; secondly, as an instrument. In the former way the ~ 187 3, 64 | minister is of the nature of an instrument, ~since the action of both 188 3, 64 | spiritual effects. Now ~an instrument has its power from the principal 189 3, 64 | own authority, but as an ~instrument, in so far as His humanity 190 3, 64 | far as His humanity is the instrument of His Godhead, ~as stated 191 3, 64 | Nevertheless, since it is an instrument united to the Godhead in 192 3, 64 | sacramental rite. For a united instrument, the more powerful it is, 193 3, 64 | its power to the separated instrument; as the ~hand can to a stick.~ 194 3, 64 | is of the ~nature of an instrument. But, as stated above (Q[ 195 3, 64 | above (Q[62], AA[1],4), an ~instrument acts not by reason of its 196 3, 64 | whatever form or power an instrument has ~in addition to that 197 3, 64 | that which it has as an instrument, is accidental to it: ~for 198 3, 64 | physician's body, which is the instrument of his ~soul, wherein is 199 3, 64 | to ~work with a lifeless instrument, and separated from him 200 3, 64 | on the ~intention of the instrument, but on that of the principal 201 3, 64 | Reply OBJ 1: An inanimate instrument has no intention regarding 202 3, 64 | principal agent. But an animate instrument, such as a ~minister, is 203 3, 66 | of a sacrament acts as an instrument, as ~stated above (Q[64], 204 3, 66 | Action is attributed to an instrument as to the immediate ~agent; 205 3, 66 | principal agent inasmuch as the instrument acts in ~virtue thereof. 206 3, 70 | we do not find that an instrument of this description is required 207 3, 70 | power Baptism has ~as the instrument of Christ's Passion already 208 3, 72 | object. ~For just as an instrument derives instrumental power 209 3, 72 | receives the form of an instrument, and when it is moved by 210 3, 72 | of grace, but only as the instrument of grace, as explained above ~( 211 3, 77 | then the ~action of the instrument must cease, as when the 212 3, 78 | priest who is an animated instrument, can pass on to ~inanimate 213 Suppl, 5 | operates primarily as an instrument for the ~forgiveness of 214 Suppl, 17| material things a key is an instrument for opening a ~door. Now 215 Suppl, 18| principal agent but ~as an instrument, and does not go so far 216 Suppl, 18| instrumentally, ~as an inanimate instrument, and the priest as an animate 217 Suppl, 18| the priest as an animate instrument, such ~as a servant is, 218 Suppl, 18| the priest acts as the instrument and ~minister of God. Now 219 Suppl, 18| minister of God. Now no instrument can have an efficacious 220 Suppl, 19| do a thing is both in the instrument and in ~the principal agent, 221 Suppl, 19| principal agent or by an instrument. Consequently we must admit ~ 222 Suppl, 19| Reply OBJ 1: Just as between instrument and effect there is need 223 Suppl, 19| but of aptitude in the instrument for ~the effect, so is it 224 Suppl, 19| so is it as regards the instrument and the principal agent. ~ 225 Suppl, 19| not make a thing to be an instrument, so neither does the ~loss 226 Suppl, 19| that thing being used as an instrument. ~Consequently, since man 227 Suppl, 19| since man is merely an instrument in the use of the keys, ~ 228 Suppl, 29| in so far as it is the ~instrument of a Divine operation. Hence 229 Suppl, 32| which they are the chief ~instrument. And since the cognitive 230 Suppl, 52| to the master a kind of instrument in working; ~wherefore children 231 Suppl, 54| is not received into an instrument in the ~same degree of perfection 232 Suppl, 54| every moved mover is an instrument, it follows that the power 233 Suppl, 56| the place of God, whose instrument and minister he ~is, he 234 Suppl, 58| may be broken by a medical instrument, and thus he may ~have connection 235 Suppl, 70| since the body is a mere instrument of action, while the powers 236 Suppl, 70| the soul. Secondly, as the instrument of ~the vengeance of Divine 237 Suppl, 70| also in punishment. Now an instrument acts ~not only in virtue 238 Suppl, 70| to suffice, since every instrument, in ~acting on that on which 239 Suppl, 70| order that it may be the instrument of Divine ~justice in the 240 Suppl, 70| corporeal fire is enabled as the instrument of ~the vengeance of Divine 241 Suppl, 70| to a place; that as the ~instrument of Divine justice it is 242 Suppl, 70| far, to wit, ~as it is the instrument of Divine justice.~Aquin.: 243 Suppl, 71| Secondly, when he acts as the instrument of ~another: for the work 244 Suppl, 71| another: for the work of the instrument belongs more to the principal ~ 245 Suppl, 71| although he who acts as the instrument of another be ~not in a 246 Suppl, 72| instruments: for ~the action of an instrument shows forth the virtue of 247 Suppl, 72| rather ~than that of the instrument, since it shows forth the 248 Suppl, 72| forth the virtue of the instrument, except in so far as it ~ 249 Suppl, 72| principal agent as moving that ~instrument. In like manner a virtue 250 Suppl, 72| will not act save as ~the instrument of the Divine power.~Aquin.: 251 Suppl, 72| so far as it acts as the instrument of the Divine power.~Aquin.: 252 Suppl, 72| will not act save as the instrument of God's ~providence and 253 Suppl, 72| judgment, will act as the instrument of Divine justice ~as well 254 Suppl, 72| so far as ~it acts as the instrument of Divine justice, it will 255 Suppl, 72| element, but also as the instrument of Divine justice.~Aquin.: 256 Suppl, 72| is not necessary for the instrument to be repaid ~together with 257 Suppl, 72| and the body is the soul's instrument. ~Wherefore even in purgatory, 258 Suppl, 72| makes use of the body as an instrument, or as a sailor uses his ~ 259 Suppl, 72| only as a worker to ~the instrument with which he works, but 260 Suppl, 76| likewise to every agent some instrument. Now the body is ~compared 261 Suppl, 76| as matter to form, and as instrument to agent. Since ~then at 262 Suppl, 77| according to the relation of instrument to agent, since "the whole 263 Suppl, 77| the ~operation fails the instrument is useless, because an instrument 264 Suppl, 77| instrument is useless, because an instrument serves ~not only to accomplish 265 Suppl, 77| is ascribed not to the instrument but to the craftsman. Therefore 266 Suppl, 79| there is no defect in ~the instrument, no action proceeds from 267 Suppl, 79| action proceeds from the instrument, except in ~accordance with 268 Suppl, 79| quality is received in an instrument, according to a spiritual ~ 269 Suppl, 79| medium sometimes, and the ~instrument of sensation with a spiritual 270 Suppl, 82| be a perfectly obedient ~instrument of its principal agent.~ 271 Suppl, 87| His flesh, as being the ~instrument of His Godhead, has also 272 Suppl, 93| right disposition in the instrument. Hence ~something principal 273 Suppl, 93| secondary with reference to the instrument. ~Wherefore in the reward 274 Suppl, 94| 3: That fire will be the instrument of Divine justice ~inflicting 275 Suppl, 94| inflicting punishment. Now an instrument acts not only by its own
