grace, sanctifying
   This term (from the Latin sanctificare, meaning "to make holy," and gratia, meaning "pleasant quality" or "good will") refers to the habitual gift that God gratuitously gives a person to respond to the divine call to salvation; sanctifying grace heals human nature and makes a person holy and pleasing to God.
