We know from scripture and our catechism that God made Adam in His image and likeness, and it is in man’s soul, intellect and free human will that he is most like his Creator. Originally created by God in a perfect state of holiness and justice, Adam’s human will was completely and continuously abandoned to and one with God’s Divine Will. Thus, in the beginning, man fully partakes of the gift of living in the Divine Will, united in intimate friendship with God.
