Grace perfects nature…

Thomas Aquinas on Nature and GraceScreen Shot 2017-01-16 at 8.34.34 PM

Taylor Marshall explains the relationship between grace and nature from the Catholic perspective.  Such a short video, explaining such a theologically deep subject, which has divided many of our protestant brothers.  Grace is a supernatural gift from God,

“a divine favor, the free and undeserved help that God gives us to respond to his call to become children of God, adoptive sons, partakers of the divine nature and of eternal life”. ccc1996

It is  grace that elevates our human nature so we can more fully participate in the divine life. It is our participation with this grace that allows us to turn away from our sin and continue a life of holiness and sanctity pleasing to God.
