INFINITY OF GOD

Definition

The boundless perfection of God. According to the teaching of the Church, God is "infinite in intellect and will and in every perfection" (First Vatican Council, Session III, Chapter I). In him there is no potentiality but only pure actuality. This means more than affirming that God has no limitations. He has within himself the fullness of all perfection, whether knowledge or power or being.
