........ He lost Sanctifying grace, Supernaturally he was dead.  He lost the Preternatural gifts too.  He could now suffer, he had come under the natural law of death; worst of all he had lost integrity, the subordination of lower powers to higher, in the rejection of his own subordination to God.

From now on every element in him would be making for its own immediate and separate gratification:  the civil war within man had begun.....
God would remain the contact and Sanctifying grace would be in him once more.  But the man it was in  was a very different man.  The Preternatural gifts were not restored, so that integrity was not there....
every one of us is a civil war.
