IMMUTABILITY IN CREATURES
Unchangeableness, which means both unchanging and not able to change or be changed. Perfect immutability is possessed only by God. Creatures participate more or less in the divine immutability as they are more perfect in being, like the soul compared with the body; or when they grow in perfection, as when the mind acquires greater certitude or the will greater fortitude.
