What Does it Mean to Be in the State of Grace? (The Inner Life with Patrick Conley)

When you are in the “state of grace,” do you feel the peace and comfort that only God can bring? Maybe you don’t feel anything! What does it mean to be in a state of grace?

In this clip of The Inner Life, Patrick Conley speaks with Fr. Michael Hurley about this. Fr. Hurley explains that being in a state of grace means having God’s life within you, justifying and connecting you to God, and sanctifying you to make your actions instruments of God’s creative activity in the world. He emphasizes that being in a state of grace allows individuals to be open channels through which God’s blessings can flow to others. Once you open yourself to God’s grace, you become a gift that God has given to others.
