T+ A- A A+

T he Father existed alone, unbegotten,without place, without time, without counsellor, and without any conceivable qualities ..., solitary and reposing alone in Himself. But as He possessed a generative Power [Logos], it pleased Him to generate and produce the most beautiful and perfect that He had in Himself, for He did not love solitude. He was all love, but love is not love if there is no object of love. So the Father, alone as He was, projected and generated [the world].
