Types of Grace

Q. I have been wondering: What are the differences between actual grace and sanctifying grace? Are there other kinds of grace? If so, how many?

A. Here’s a reply from TCA columnist Father Ray Ryland, Ph.D., J.D:

The Catechism of the Catholic Church tells us, “Grace is favor, the free and undeserved help that God gives us to respond to his call to become children of God, adoptive sons, partakers of the divine nature and of eternal life” (No. 1996). There is only one grace, that which makes us sharers in the life of the divine. The various terms we use for grace simply point to differing functions grace plays in our lives.
