About-

Just as all organisms are governed by biological laws, human beings also have an ingrained moral compass--laws that direct their behavior in a certain way. According to Catholic Tradition, the virtues operate as central principles behind our notion of moral goodness.

Here is a unique and insightful book that examines the virtues and offers them as a blueprint that demonstrates how to embrace the seven key virtues as pillars of behavior and belief. Author Mitch Finley delves into the theological virtues of faith, hope, and love, and the cardinal virtues of prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance. He shows you how these traits are no mere abstractions; they reflect an understanding of human nature with its capacity for both good and evil.

Bolstered by contemporary applications and real-life examples, The Catholic Virtues shows how the seven virtues are interconnected and are, quite simply, the keys to becoming more Christlike.
