VIDEO: Father Jonathan Morris on the Cardinal Virtues, Part One: Prudence

This week, Father Jonathan Morris begins a four week series about the cardinal virtues: prudence, temperance, justice and fortitude. These are the virtues, he explains, “that Plato and Aristotle and others ever since have been talking about as the bedrock of good character…and a good society.”

The first to be addressed here is prudence, which can also be described as wisdom. Father Jonathan shares insights on how acting with prudence can lead us to greater holiness and help us become the best version of ourselves that God intends for us to be.
