Grace 

Anglican theology, notably represented by Richard Hooker, has emphasized the gratuitous nature of grace and the importance of participation in the economy of God's salvation, especially as known in the life of the church where grace is sacramentally represented and made known. The Catechism notes that grace is "God's favor towards us, unearned and undeserved." By grace God "forgives our sins, enlightens our minds, stirs our hearts, and strengthens our wills." The Catechism also states that the sacraments and other sacramental rites of the church are means of grace (BCP, pp. 857-860).
