Virtuous Living Made Simple requires that we understand what a virtue is and that we work each day to align our lives with virtue. Virtue is moral excellence. It is integrity and honesty. It is making the choice in each situation that will bring about goodness and life for each person and the world. It requires that we know who we are and what we stand for. We are not influenced by something that seems right. We have taken the time to know what IS right and we make the choice to do the right and good thing in each situation we face. As we practice virtue, we develop our character.
Living a virtuous life also requires that we have a compass in our life that pulls us toward true north. What is your compass? Do you have a good, solid, moral compass that leads you to do the right and good thing in every situation you face?
This is essentially the core of virtuous living, and for Catholics and Catholic Homeschool parents, this comes from our faith in Jesus Christ and His Inspiring, Life-Giving Holy Spirit!
