A Catholic theologian wrote about the different "specialties" of the Persons of the Trinity:

Quote
Even though everything the Three Persons do outside the Divine nature is done by all Three, yet it is suitable that we attribute some works specially to one or the other Person. So we speak of the Father especially as the power of creation, of the Son as the wisdom of the Father, of the Holy Spirit as goodness and sanctification.

Wouldn't Orthodoxy say that the Son is the power of creation, the Person who directly created the cosmos?

I've always believed that God the Father created the cosmos THROUGH the Son.  The Father is Creator, the Son is the Instrument and the Spirit is the Sustainer.

I could be wrong and would gladly accept correction.

The plural of sai is just sai--no s added on. There, someone else mentioned that weapon, happy?  Grin

PS. Yes I have owned and used a couple pairs. No, I was not quite as good as Raphael.
