Freedom (Aquinas 101)


Video from The Thomistic Institute


"How is it possible that God's grace can move us freely to make saving acts of faith, hope, and love? Isn't this simply a contradiction? The highest good of the human person is to dwell in eternal life with God. This is something that is infinitely above our natural capacity, but God, by the gift of his grace that comes to us from Christ, can freely move us to desire and to choose to love God above all things: to believe the words of Christ, to entrust ourselves to the power of his sacraments, and to profess the faith of the church. When we do these things, we are in fact experiencing what our freedom was made for in its full amplitude to know, and thus, to love the Supreme good for its own sake. Freedom (Aquinas 101) - Fr. Dominic Legge, O.P." from video introduction.
