Actual Grace The supernatural help from God to do good and avoid evil to enable us to save our souls.
Christian Morality The part of theology that specifies the moral norms derived from the new being that the Christian-because of his incorporation into Christ in Baptism-needs to follow, with the hope of imitating Jesus' life to the point of identifying with him.
Christian Vocation God's call to the human being by which he is incorporated into Christ through grace and becomes a member of the Mystical Body of Christ. As one of God's people, he partakes in the life of the Church.

Freedom The power rooted in reason and the will, to act or not to act, to do this or that, and so to perform deliberate actions on one's own responsibility.
