IT is evident that our eternal salvation depends principally upon the choice of our state of life. Father Louis de Granada calls this choice the chief wheel of our whole life. Hence, as when in a clock the chief wheel is deranged the whole clock is also deranged, so in the order of our salvation, if we make a mistake as to the state to which we are called, our whole life will be in error.
