The Fathers Speak...The Person of the Holy Spirit and the Filioque

Saint John Damascene, De Fide Orthodoxa

''Likewise we believe also in one Holy Spirit, the Lord and giver of life . . . God existing and addressed along with Father and Son; uncreated, full, creative, all-ruling, all-effecting, all-powerful, of infinite power, Lord of all creation and not under any lord; deifying, not deified; filling, not filled; sharing in, not shared in; sanctifying, not sanctified; the intercessor, receiving the supplications of all; in all things like to the Father and Son; proceeding from the Father and communicated through the Son''

  1. "communicated (to the creature) through the Son" but not proceeding from Him. No Filioque here
