|I believe in one God sole and
Unmoved moves all the heavens with love and
With desire; and for such belief I have not
Only proofs physical and metaphysical, but
That truth gives it to me which hence
Rains down through Moses, through prophets
And whatever Psalms, through the Gospels.
(Dante, Paradiso, Canto XXIV, 125-132)
The glory of Him who moves everything
"We should know, in this connection,
that God and nature make nothing in vain, and that whatever is produced serves some
"God who is the absolute world
"Since God achieves the highest perfection,
and since his instruments, the heavens, are without defects, only one alternative remains:
any defect in things here below must be due to a defect in Gods raw material, and
must be external to the intention of the God of creation and of Heaven."
"God alone elects, He alone establishes
"Him alone, who is the ruler, of all
things spiritual and temporal."
