Infused Moral Virtues

  • are traits or behavior infused by Grace without our effort
  • are part of the Supernatural Organism 
  • enhance our spiritual journey and life
  • go beyond being a good, well-balanced, and mature human being
  • enable us to live our human lives in a divine mode 

  • FG: 13-24 

The natural moral virtues were distinguished long ago by the Greek philosophers. The infused virtues are given to us, not by habitual practice like the natural virtues, but as a pure gift from God.

The infused moral virtues go beyond being a good, well-balanced and mature human being. They support being fully human in a divine way.

Description

The infused moral virtues are given to enhance the natural virtues of justice, fortitude, prudence, and temperance. They go beyond the goal of being a well-balanced and mature human being. The infused moral virtues enable us to live our human life in a divine mode. Their action is more powerful when they are based on habits of the natural moral virtues that we have developed.
