Virtue is the substance and the meaning of life.
It is what makes life worth living.
The greatest virtue is love.
Without love, life would be meaningless and empty.
Love is the foundation of all other virtues
When we learn to abound with love:
for the creatures of nature,
for the flowers and the plants,
for the beauty of God's handiwork,
for the art of the masters,
for the music of the ages
and for the voyage of the discovery of knowledge;
then we are living a life filled with meaning and purpose.
The virtue of joy is what causes us:
to delight in God's Presence,
to appreciate the beauty of all God's creations
and to have the sparkle of enthusiastic zeal in our lives.
A person who abounds with virtue is like a breath of
fresh air and a shining light in a world which otherwise
would be filled with darkness.
