The Theological Virtues : The Theological Virtues (Faith, Hope, and Charity) Faith: pertains to the intellect, since truth is the object of faith. In fact, the object of faith is the first truth, that is, God Himself. By faith the Christian soul enters, as it were, into marriage with God…Before Christ’s coming no philosopher by his entire sustained effort could have known as much about God and the truths necessary for salvation as can a humble old woman now that Christ has come. Exposition, Apostles’ Creed : By faith the Christian soul enters, as it were, into marriage with God…Before Christ’s coming no philosopher by his entire sustained effort could have known as much about God and the truths necessary for salvation as can a humble old woman now that Christ has come. Exposition, Apostles’ Creed Between knowledge through science and knowledge through faith there is this difference: science shines only on the mind, showing that God is the cause of everything, that he is one and wise, and so forth. Faith enlightens the mind and also warms the affections, telling us not merely that God is first cause, but also that he is saviour, redeemer, loving, made flesh for us. Commentary, 2 Corinthians, ii, lect. 3 : Between knowledge through science and knowledge through faith there is this difference: science shines only on the mind, showing that God is the cause of everything, that he is one and wise, and so forth. Faith enlightens the mind and also warms the affections, telling us not merely that God is first cause, but also that he is saviour, redeemer, loving, made flesh for us. Commentary, 2 Corinthians, ii, lect. 3 Slide 4: Hope: The supernatural virtue of hope (a gift as well) looks expectantly to the future. Through the virtue of hope, a person awaits in confidence the fulfillment of the promises of God. Hope also looks forward to personal immortality and the resurrection of the body. Charity: The most important of the virtues, and the one most important for the development of the human person. Charity is the love of God under the aspect of friendship. For on the purely natural level, man's greatest achievement is found in friendship (in the true sense of the word). That is why human friendship is the best way of explaining man's relationship to God brought about through charity. Slide 5: Man's greatest achievement is going to be found in a perfect love of God through charity, and so his personal growth will be found in his increasing love of God under the aspect of personal friendship. The Four Cardinal Virtues : The Four Cardinal Virtues These virtues perfect the four principal powers of the human person: Intellect, Will, Concupiscible, and Irascible powers. Practical Intellect: perfected by the virtue of Prudence : Practical Intellect: perfected by the virtue of Prudence Will – perfected by the virtue of: Justice. : Will – perfected by the virtue of: Justice. Irascible Appetite: perfected by the virtue of: Fortitude : Irascible Appetite: perfected by the virtue of: Fortitude Concupiscible Appetite: perfected by the virtue of: Temperance : Concupiscible Appetite: perfected by the virtue of: Temperance Slide 11: Intellect -- Prudence Will --- Justice Concupiscible appetite Irascible appetite Temperance Fortitude Slide 14: Before man can perfect his ability to act well in relation to others (justice), he must perfect his ability to act well with himself from within himself. He will do so by cultivating temperance and fortitude. Concupiscible appetite Irascible appetite Fortitude Temperance Slide 15: CHRISTIAN DEFINITION of the Cardinal Virtues TEMPERANCE: Love that keeps itself entire and incorrupt for God. FORTITUDE: Love bearing everything readily for the sake of God. JUSTICE: Love serving God only, and therefore ruling well all else, as subject to man. PRUDENCE: Love making a right distinction between what helps it towards God and what might hinder it. ST. AUGUSTINE (On the Morals of the Catholic Church, Chapter 15)
