Daily Thought For May 20, 2017

Living Out Our Baptism!

The Most Holy Trinity gives the baptized sanctifying grace, the grace of justification: 

— enabling them to believe in God, to hope in him, and to love him through the theological virtues;

giving them the power to live and act under the prompting of the Holy Spirit through the gifts of the Holy Spirit;

— allowing them to grow in goodness through the moral virtues.

Thus the whole organism of the Christian’s supernatural life has its roots in Baptism.
