"Zur Seligkeit berufen, aber durch die Sünde verwundet, bedarf der Mensch des Heiles Gottes. Die göttliche Hilfe wird ihm in Christus durch das Gesetz, das ihn leitet, und in der Gnade, die ihn stärkt, zuteil. „Müht euch mit Furcht und Zittern um euer Heil! Denn Gott ist es, der in euch das Wollen und Vollbringen bewirkt, nach seinem Wohlgefallen" (Phil 2,12-13)."
