Fundamental moral theology concludes with a consideration of the external principles of human acts that lead us to beatitude, that is to say, to God himself. The study of the virtues has already shown that the infused virtues and the gifts of the Holy Spirit are necessary to act divinely, by participation. But if action follows being, then deification must be ontological before it is ethical. Participation in the divine nature, the dwelling of God in us, divine filiation express this participation in the Son-being and God-being of the Lord Jesus, giving us a share in his Spirit. The divine law, which guides the actions of believers throughout the ages, culminates as a new law, not written on tablets of stone but inscribed in hearts of flesh: the very grace of the Holy Spirit.
