English An attempt to bring omnipotence and almightiness together. Searching for integration and unity in this field relies on the assumption that reason and faith aim at the very same truth who is God and his wisdom, embodied in both the created order and in the Paschal mystery. Instead of fostering a sharp divide of registers or notional contents between almightiness and omnipotence, I will argue that the very same attribute of the One True God might be approached by both philosophers and theologians, relying on their proper and different instances of judgment. The key to this epistemological argument will be provided by Thomas Aquinas’ analysis of the possible and the impossible, within a theology which remains mindful of God’s power.
