Sanctifying Grace

Resource Toolbox
Additional Links

The free gift of God establishing the soul in the way of justification and holiness. Its intimate nature is beyond mere human analysis, but judging by its effects, we are justified in regarding it as a physical adornment of the soul, permanent in its essence, incompatible with grievous sin, recreating the soul as a new nature competent to act supernaturally and meritoriously. It is habitual grace regarded under one aspect - the real interior sanctification which enriches the soul and makes it permanently holy in the sight of God.
