He helps us. He guides us.

We understand the greatness, of our smallness, in our attempt, at perfection, in our small ways.

Our small ways.
And He helps us.
He guides us.
He helps us.
If we let Him.
If we let Him.
He guides us.
He helps us.

He has given us Himself, He has given us His only Son, true man, true God, He has given us the wonders and presence of His Holy Spirit, He has given us our holy mother church, He has given us the sacraments, He has given us prayer, He has given us the example of the saints, and He has given us the capacity for virtue.

Virtue.

He has given us the capacity for virtue so that we may access all these good things, and access them perfectly.
