Our Virtues


Our Virtues. Christ at the centre


Virtue is not a word in common use in society at large, but it is common to hear people talk about being loving, respectful, honest, thankful, brave, fair, compassionate, forgiving and so on.

A virtue is a quality of good character, character which is shaped by the performance of virtues: one honest act does not make a person honest, but a determination to be honest performed in a series of honest acts throughout one’s life makes one an honest person: we are what we repeatedly do!

A virtue is a habitual way of behaving, a disposition, that forms good character and, at the same time, constitutes a particular kind of community. Virtues build ethos.
