For the Spiritual Moms: Grace

We praise you, Holy Trinity, for the gift of grace!

What is grace? What are the two kinds of grace? Catholic Answers gives us what we need to understand grace; it also serves as a good review. The reading is easy; it is great for ages 10 to 110 so, yes, you can send this site to friends and family. 

I will be posting "lessons" such as this one to remind us of the rich teachings of our Church. We are and have been equipped with an abundance of teachings to learn from and be reminded of, so that we may truly learn from them and live in holiness. 

Dear Spiritual Moms, we pray that priests may live in holiness -- a noble task! -- but we ourselves should remain holy, or do our best to become holy and live in holiness as best we can. (Which grace do we need to live this kind of holiness?) Read Catholic Answers that tells us about grace.

Let us pray for one another. "Pray without ceasing" (1 Thessalonians 5:16). We are encouraged to pray for one another because "the prayer of a righteous mans is powerful and effective" (James 5:16b).

"Do not confirm yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect" (Romans 12:2). 

Happy Reading!
