God is infinite. God is not finite because things that are made of form and matter are finite. The form limits the matter, and the matter limits the form. Since God has no form or matter, he is not limited and is therefore infinite. Not just infinite in ability, but also in existence.

On the other hand, things of creation are relatively infinite as their existence is related to their potential to have an infinite number of forms. However, this is not the same infinite of God who is not limited by form and matter.

Bodies cannot be infinite in magnitude. Because bodies have size, they are measureable, which makes them finite. If a number has infinite potentiality, this means that a number can be divided and multiplied by any number. However, infinity itself cannot be divided and end with a real result. Infinity is limitless, endless, and is like a black hole of math and existence and power.

To study the Summa Theologiae, I highly suggest doing so with Verbum from Logos bible software. Verbum is a state-of-the-art library that connects thousands of resources so that you can study a subject with layers of depth, analysis, and understanding. If you’re new to the Summa, you really need companion material and it’s all available in the Verbum package. For example, each Question and Article in the Summa sources several other documents of the Magisterium, other philosophers, Church Fathers, etc., – and Verbum connects them all, so that in one click, you can explore and connect the Tradition of the Church easily and scholarly. I use Verbum everyday, no exaggeration, it’s that important to me. Learn more about Verbum here.
