Such was the mind of the Chritian Church from the beginning.

(For an exhaustive treatment of justification, see the article JUSTIFICATION ).In this article, we shall treat only of sanctifying grace. ) Santifying grace Since the end and aim of all efficacious grace is directed to the production of sanctifying grace where it does not already exist, or to retain and increase it where it is already present, its excellence, dignity, and importance become immediately apparent; for holiness and the sonship of God depend solely upon the possession of sanctifying grace, wherefore it is frequently called simply grace without any qualifying word to accompany it as, for instance, in the phrases "to live in grace" or "to fall from grace". The word justification ( justificatio , from justum facere ) derives its name from justice ( justitia ), by which is not merely meant the cardinal virtue in the sense of a contant purpose to respect the rights of others ( suum cuique ), nor is the term taken in the concept of all those virtues which go to make up the moral law, but connotes, especially, the whole inner relation of man to God as to his supernatural end.This conflict may be reduced to four differences of teaching.
By a justifying faith the Church understands qualitatively the theoretical faith in the truths of Revelation, and demands over and above this faith other acts of preparation for justification.
Paul is identical with the mental act of faith or belief in Divine truth ; for Abraham was justified not by faith in his own justification, but by faith in the truth of the Divine promise that he would be the "father of many nations" (cf. ) and that the minimum expressly necessary for justification is contained in the two dogmas : the existence of God, and the doctrine of eternal reward ( Hebrews 11:6 ).
The Redeemer Himself made belief in the teaching of the gospel a necessary condition for salvation, when he solemnly commanded the Apostles to preach the Gospel to the whole world ( Mark ). John the Evangelist declares his Gospel has been written for the purpose of exciting belief in the Divine Sonship of Christ, and links to this faith the possession of eternal life ( John ).
All pertinent questions group themselves around three points of view from which the subject may be considered: I. Every adult soul stained either with original sin or with actual mortal sin (children are of course excepted) must, in order to arrive at the state of justification, pass through a short or long process of justification, which may be likened to the gradual development of the child in its mother's womb.
The preparation for sanctifying grace, or the process of justification. This development attains its fullness in the birth of the child, accompanied by the anguish and suffering with which this birth is invariably attended; our rebirth in God is likewise preceded by great spiritual sufferings of fear and contrition.
The road for this couple wasn’t as smooth as you would think.
