Saintly Habits - Aquinas' 7 Simple Strategies You Can Use to Grow in Virtue
Seven clear, simple strategies from St. Thomas Aquinas for understanding and living out virtue. In Saintly Habits: Aquinas’ 7 Simple Strategies You Can Use to Grow in Virtue, Catholics will find a guide to virtue that will transform their understanding of what a virtuous life looks like and teach them how to put their new knowledge into practice.
Written by professor Andrew Whitmore, Saintly Habits makes the theological wisdom of St. Thomas Aquinas accessible to modern-day Catholics with explanations of:
What virtue is and is not
How the virtues are connected
The difference between virtues and vices
What conscience is and how to form it
How to break bad habits and foster good ones
Why prayer and the sacraments are necessary for spiritual progress
Featuring anecdotes, relatable analogies, and practical suggestions that animate this presentation of the virtues, Saintly Habits takes a positive and encouraging approach to a seldom discussed topic by illustrating how St. Thomas’ seven strategies provide a roadmap for our spiritual journey that we can apply to our daily lives.
By encouraging us to understand the virtues we already possess as Catholics, God’s desire for us to be holy, and the Church’s role in supporting our journey of faith, this book provides the tools that we need to answer the call to grow ever closer to Christ in virtue and holiness.
