Church Father Quote of the Day

Cause has one nature, an instrument another, and place yet another. So the Son’s nature is alien to the Father’s, since the tool is by nature different from the craftsman, and the nature of the Spirit is foreign to both, since place and time are different from tools or those who handle them. 

St. Basil the Great
On the Holy Spirit
p 22
