Book - 1999
Rate this:
Virtues are sources of action in conformity with the true objectives of human life. They are the barometers used to determine if an act is good or bad, right or wrong. According to Catholic tradition and the living word of the Gospels, they work together to form a total domain that creates the central principle behind moral goodness.A primer on the seven qualities of a blessed Catholic life -- the theological virtues of faith, hope, and love; and the cardinal virtues of prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance -- this book presents an accessible and informed discussion that demonstrates how to embrace these key pillars of Catholic character.In his usual down-to-earth, understandable style, Mitch Finley shows readers how the seven virtues are by no means abstractions; rather, they reflect an understanding of human nature that characterizes our tremendous capacity for both good and evil. Finley demonstrates how cultivating the theological and cardinal virtues, quite simply, is the key to becoming more Christ-like.Bolstered by contemporary applications and examples, The Catholic Virtues emphasizes that, even in the sphere of individual action, these traits are interconnected -- linked by prudence, grace, and charity. A wonderful blueprint for living a Catholic life in our secular and consumer culture.
