Detached from This, Attached to God

JacquesIf it is true that grace makes us the adopted children of God, then the more profoundly faith works in us the more intensely it leads us to long for the liberty of those children, that freedom of autonomy which means independence with regard to creatures and dependence with regard to God.
Jacques Maritain (1882–1973)
