On this episode, Father Nicolás Despósito covers the first chapter of Royo Marín's Theology of Christian Perfection: The End. The consideration of purpose is the first thing required in the study of any dynamic work. The glory of God and our sanctification are two modalities of one single end. Father explains the distinction between the intrinsic and the extrinsic glory of God and how the ultimate end of the Christian life is to glorify God. Even the soul's salvation and sanctification must be sought for the greater glory of God.
What is the difference between the perfection of the wayfarer and the perfection of the blessed in glory? The union of the blessed with God in glory presupposes three distinct elements in the souls of those who enjoy the beatific vision: sanctifying grace, charity and the light of glory. The perfection of the wayfarer consists on the first two elements, something which should give us an idea of the importance of grace and virtue on the life of Catholics.
