What is a Person?

A person has an intellect, by which it can know, and a will, by which it chooses. A person is a "someone" never a "something." Animals are not persons because their intellects are governed by instinct. Only persons are capable of freely choosing.

There are three types of persons: Divine Persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit), angelic persons (angels), and human persons (human beings).
