On Free Will, Again, on Divine Mercy Sunday
Posted by Supertradmum
Much was lost between the teaching of the Penny or Baltimore Catechism and the newer versions, until the CCC was published. One of the greatest losses which affects millions of Catholics under the age of sixty, must be the understanding of free will, a theme on this blog, sin and holiness.
Too many Catholics do not understand that the will is informed by the intellect. Please see my numerous posts on this point.
As the Catechism notes, one is freest when one is obedient to God's ways and His will. Those who are in slavery to sin have given up their wills to sin.
One of the footnotes in this section on freedom in the CCC is on Romans 6:7.
