I wish to repost the following important distinction:

Grace of the intellect, faith, builds on nature: the knowledge is one edifice, but can be separated into rational and revealed.

Grace of power, hope, becomes nature: power is one and without any distinguishable parts of “yours” vs. “God’s”: what you can do, you can do seamlessly.

Grace of the will, charity, wounds nature: charity pierces the heart and breaks our self-sufficiency as we learn to love. The greater your natural gifts, the more humble your servitude in the state of grace.
