Our Catechism teaches that the first man was not only created good but was also established in friendship with his Creator and in harmony with himself and with the creation around him. Our first parents, Adam and Eve, were constituted in an original “state of holiness and justice”. This grace of original holiness was “to share in. . .God’s divine life”. As long as he remained in this divine intimacy, man would not have to suffer or die. The inner harmony of the human person, the harmony between man and woman, and finally the harmony between the first couple and all creation, comprised the state called “original justice”.  The “mastery” over the world that God offered man from the beginning was realized above all within man’s mastery of himself. The first man was ordered in his whole being because he was free from the triple concupiscence that could enslave him to the sins of pride, sins of the flesh, and disordered desires for wealth. In this state of original holiness and justice of man and woman before sin: God walked in friendship with them in paradise. This entire harmony of original justice was lost by the sin of our first parents. (Catechism of the Catholic Church 374-377, 379)
