Virtuous Living is a gift to ourselves and others. It is the essence of Aristotle's concept of human flourishing, which occurs when we live according to the four virtues he identified nearly 2,500 years ago! When we think of St. Paul's cardinal virtues, which are listed below, we can see how important they are. Add to these the theological virtues of faith, hope, and love and we can see how they all contribute to a life well-lived.
Aristotle's Virtues are:
1.) Prudence (or practical wisdom)
2.) Temperance (or self-control)
3.) Fortitude (or courage)
4.) Justice (or doing the right and good thing).
When we live according to the virtues, we ourselves flourish and we encourage others to flourish, too. Essentially, we create a good and loving society.
What can you do today to live according to these four virtues? How can you live the theological virtues today? Help yourself and help others live a more productive life.
