Timothy O’Malley: “human perfection is possible”

“Christianity isn’t about welcoming the imperfect–and then affirming all of us in our imperfections. Rather, the Church consists of those who have been baptized into Christ, who dare to believe that human perfection is possible through the grace of God. Those who believe that perfect love, perfect joy, perfect grace, perfect gift, perfect peace is the vocation of each and every human being. And that the Church, through her sacraments, through prayer, through concrete deeds of charity performed over the course of a lifetime, capacitates us toward this perfection.”

Timothy O’Malley, U. of Notre Dame
