Grace and Our Dependence on God
I ran across a great article on actual grace written by a Dominican priest, Father Paul A. Duffner. It explains the nature of actual grace, God's predestination and man's freewill within a traditional Thomistic theological pedagogy. He also gets into the primary and secondary causes which explain man's relationship to God, and he addresses the human intellect and will. "In a word, God not only Enlightens the Intellect and Strengthens the Will; it is God Who sets these Two Faculties within us into Activity without taking away our Freedom." The article is not very long and I think it is worth taking a few minutes to read.
