Being fully alive.
St. Irenaeus said, “The glory of God is people fully alive.” A fully alive person has knowledge of what is true, good, and beautiful. A fully alive person has the freedom to choose the right path and does what they ought to do with joy. The fully alive person is a person of virtue and enables us to live as a moral person.
Dear God, we ask for your grace to work on developing the Cardinal Virtue of Fortitude. Help us to work hard; to never give up even while knowing it is very human to be tempted to quit. Help us to persevere toward reaching our goals, especially when they seem so far away. Most of all Lord, help us to always have courage to be persistent in pursuing our goals with determination. In your name we pray to grow in fortitude all for the glory of God.Amen
Today, I will ask the Holy Spirit to strengthen my courage to focus on and develop the Cardinal Virtue of Fortitude.
