  6. 6. What is Grace?<br />Grace is a supernatural gift from God. It is a share in God’s own divine life.<br />It is necessary for salvation.<br />We are born with original sin and therefore without grace.<br />There are different kinds of grace:<br />Sanctifying<br />Actual<br />Sacramental<br />

  8. 8. When we receive God’s grace, we become temples of the Holy Spirit, who comes to live within us.
