God’s Love Cannot Fail Its Work in Us

Charles JournetOnce there is a state of grace, there is the indwelling of the divine Persons; and once there is this indwelling [in the soul there is] grace. Of course, we bear this treasure in weak vessels as Saint Paul says (see 2 Cor 4:7): our heart is weakened by the original wound and the accumulated wounds of our past sins. Nevertheless, we are certain that if God’s love falls upon us, it cannot fail to purify us.
Charles Cardinal Journet (18911975)
