The Catechism of the Catholic Church conceives of virtue as " a habitual and firm disposition to do good . The human virtues are stable dispositions of the intellect and will that govern our actions , order our passions, and guide us according to reason and faith. Can be grouped around the four cardinal virtues . Prudence, justice, fortitude and temperance " ( 1833/34 )

" Prudence disposes practical reason to discern , in every circumstance , our true good to choose the appropriate means to accomplish it right.

"Justice is the constant and firm will to give God and neighbor their due . "" The fortress guarantees , the difficulties , the firmness and constancy in the pursuit of the good . "" Temperance moderates the attraction of pleasures sensitive and provides balance in the use of created goods.

The three theological virtues are: FAITH , HOPE AND CHARITY . By faith we believe in God and all that he has revealed through the prophets and especially by Jesus Christ , the incarnate Word . Also through the teachings of the Magisterium of the Church ." For the 1843 - HOPE , we wish and look forward to God with firm confidence , eternal life and the graces to merit it . "" By 1844 , CHARITY , we love God above all things and our neighbor as ourselves for the love of God. She is "the bond of perfection ." ( Cl 3.14 ) and the form of all the virtues . "  

When a Christian is baptized he receives the 7 gifts of the Holy Spirit : wisdom , understanding, counsel , fortitude, knowledge , piety and fear of God.The reader might ask , in a world so full of vices ( drinking , smoking , hard drugs , unruly sex, etc. . ) , How to practice virtue?

We believe that ONLY BY THE GRACE OF GOD , can withstand the tribulations that the modern world has brought . Only the Holy Spirit of God , we receive in our baptism , we find strength , inspiration , to guide us on the path of Divine Truth !And for that we must EDUCATE OUR WILL! . Without a strong will , we can not bring to fruition our Christian mission . By the will we create and solidifying the virtues within our hearts .There are superb people who do not need God . They consider themselves above good and evil . Are sufficient to themselves and want to " win " at any cost , ie , stepping on all people who disrupt them their trajectory.

The man and woman of God , follow another path . The path of respect , especially SOLIDARITY and sharing. We all have wonderful gifts we have been given by God in our baptism . What happens is that people leave the hibernating and non develops a community service .Have you ever thought dear reader , if the " Brazilian politicians " were rich men and women in VIRTUES ? ? Could undoubtedly have a just and fraternal Country !Worth a practice that Jesus Christ left us : " LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS I LOVED YOU ."A great week for you my dear and beloved readers , with blessings of health , peace , prosperity, harmony and joy in their hearts ! Shalom !
