The Sacraments bring Divine Life or Grace. Christ's Reason for taking upon Himself a Human Nature, was to Pay for Sin, by Death on the Cross, and to bring us a Higher Life: "I have come so that they may have Life, and have it more abundantly" (John 10:10). But, it may be said, that Man already has Life. Indeed he does; he has a Biological, Physiological Life. He once had a Higher Divine Life, which he Lost. Christ came to bring that Life back to Man. This Higher Life, which is Divine, distinct from the Human, is called Grace, because it is Gratis or a Free Gift of God.

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
