The Moral Virtues

Lesson Four of Virtue, with Fr Aquinas Guilbeau, OP, MDiv, STL, STD, Assistant Professor of Moral Theology, Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception, and Prior of the Priory of the Immaculate Conception.

Like his ancient and patristic forebears, St. Thomas showcases the cardinal virtues as the building blocks of human flourishing and happiness. Prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance, as habits of intellect, will, and passion, perfect man’s external actions and internal movements, which according to St. Thomas render not only his pursuits but also his person good.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
