Does "in the image of God" refers to our souls?

I bebelieve that when we talk about being made in the image and likeness of God we talk about our souls. Am I correct?

Yes, we are made in the image and likeness of God because we can love, create, and truly choose good.


**1704 **The human person participates in the light and power of the divine Spirit. By his reason, he is capable of understanding the order of things established by the Creator. By free will, he is capable of directing himself toward his true good. He finds his perfection “in seeking and loving what is true and good.”

**1705 **By virtue of his soul and his spiritual powers of intellect and will, man is endowed with freedom, an “outstanding manifestation of the divine image.”
