baptismal grace


Sanctifying grace conferred in Baptism, inasmuch as it gives the recipient a right to special help from God to enable him to observe the commandments and so follow Christ worthily. Baptismal innocence is the state of the soul as the result of Baptism, a state which many saints are believed to have preserved until death.
