Reflection by Fr. Slowiak

A note about Virtues in moral living, living that enhances the quality of human life.

Prudence (to discern the good and the moral means of achieving that which is morally good)

Justice (the constant will to give God and one’s neighbor that which is due them not me)

Fortitude (the resolve to resist negative temptations in moral living)

Temperance (to appreciate desires within the limits of that which constitutes a person to be moral)

The four virtues noted are behaviors that reflect one’s character.  They do not exist in events, but in people. There are no virtuous moments only virtuous men and women, boys and girls.
