Of the Love or Dilection of the Angels
The next subject for our consideration is that act of the will which is love or dilection; because every act of the appetitive faculty comes of love.Under this heading there are five points of inquiry:
- Whether there is natural love in the angels?
- Whether there is in them love of choice?
- Whether the angel loves himself with natural love or with love of choice?
- Whether one angel loves another with natural love as he loves himself?
- Whether the angel loves God more than self with natural love?
