[quote=Ghosty]I know it’s not a Latin thing, but I didn’t ask Latins specifically, I asked Catholics
I’m interested particularily in a Catholic use of such theology in addressing Protestants, because I think it could be of profound usefulness …
Before it can be useful, it must be comprehensible. Do you know of any Eastern Rite theologian that has written something comprehensible about the distinction between the Divine Essence and the Divine Energy? If you could give a hyperlink to such a resource, I would like to read it!
The only stuff I have ever read about the Divine Energies has been written by the Eastern Orthodox, and they seem to be less interested in explaining what they mean by the Divine Energies, than in slamming the Catholics for talking about created grace. From what little I can comprehend about the EO concept of the Divine Energies, they seem to be talking about created grace!
