-- Phil 2:12-18
Called to beatitude but wounded by sin, man stands in need of salvation from God. Divine help comes to him in Christ through the law that guides him and the grace that sustains him:
- Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for God is at work in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.
- -- CCC 1949
