Journeying with the Founder Day #336

I become a child of the Father, a brother of Christ, God’s heir, a co-heir with Christ, and therefore I acquire the right to turn to God, in a way like Christ, and to call Him ‘Abba’, sweet Father.  Here is what grace is: a created reality that comes from the Heart of God. The Father gives grace because Christ has gained it for us by dying on the cross, and the Holy Spirit gives it concretely to our souls in order to transform us in Christ.  For this reason we speak of sanctifying grace because it sanctifies us or sets us apart for the holiness of God; makes us similar to Him, detached from evil and sin; and, therefore, gives us moral holiness.
