(Latin: in, not; finis, bound)

Without limit. An attribute of God denoting that He has no limit to any of His perfections, wisdom, beauty, power, justice, but has in Himself the fulness of being and of every perfection. According to the Vatican Council, He is infinite in intellect and will and every perfection, really and essentially distinct from the world, infinitely blessed in Himself and through Himself and inexpressibly above all things that can exist and be thought of besides Him.
