grace:

 Grace is the very essence of life founting through the Paraclete; its chief outward signs are understanding and communication.
A.  Actual Grace [or Communicating Grace] is the ongoing continual contact by Paraclete with each being -- 'continual' as long as being does not sin against the Paraclete via rejection of the contact itself, or the principle behind it.
B.  a.  Sanctifying Grace [or Constructive/Transformational Grace] is the substantive essence of Life itself which is formative into infinite number & type of facets and which unique collection of such 'facets of grace' forms the substance/identity of each being for eternity.
      b.  Sacramental Grace is a sub-set of Sanctifying Grace in which it is fashioned into a unique & purposefully designated bundle of grace in order to support & mark some 'life commitment' [seven sacraments]; there also are sub-sets of these seven sacraments when some special support & mark provided by grace is clearly providing assistance to some function which is both significant & different & additional to functions associated with 7  main sacraments.
