Grace And Freedom

“Grace and freedom are thoroughly interwoven, and we cannot unravel their interrelatedness into clear formulae.  It remains true that we could not love if we were not first loved by God.  God’s grace always precedes us, embraces us and carries us. But it also remains true that man is called to love in return, he does not remain an unwilling tool of God’s omnipotence: he can love in return or he can refuse God’s love. “

Joseph Ratzinger, “The Infancy Narratives”, page 76
