St. Thomas Aquinas

St. Thomas Aquinas says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“You are asking about God's Deciding Will. No one acts in thought, word or deed without first deciding to do so. It is the same with God. His Deciding Will embraces His Permitting Will and His Ordaining Will. Whatever He permits or ordains is His Deciding Will. Therefore, His Deciding Will is His Divine Will in action. It is the course of action of all grace, human acts, and choices good or bad. God permits bad choices as He respects free will. However, He always allows grace its moment of intervention.”

“When someone decides, they choose. So it is with God's Deciding Will. He chooses what grace to send where and just how to intervene towards man's welfare.”

“I hope you understand this complicated yet simple concept now.”
