Practicing the 4 Cardinal Virtues Four-Week Challenge – Week 2 – Justice
So last week, I committed to practicing prudence. I looked for opportunities to practice prudence. Unfortunately, I could not identify any specific circumstances where I was able to practice that virtue. It could be that I just missed opportunities that God put in my path. It could be that I was not spiritually minded enough. I just know that I cannot remember any specific instances where I practiced prudence.
If any of you practiced prudence last week, or even if you remember specific instances where you practiced prudence at any time, please feel free to post some examples.
Week 2: Justice
Justice disposes us to give everyone what belongs to him.-It teaches us to give what is due to God and to man. It makes us willing to live according to the commandments. Justice perfects the will and safeguards the rights of man: his right to life, freedom, honor, good name, sanctity of the home, and external possessions.
The just man is an upright man. He gives to every one his due: he gives God worship; the authorities, obedience; his subordinates, rewards and punishments; and his equals, brotherly love. “Render to all men whatever is their due; tribute to whom tribute is due; taxes to whom taxes are due; fear to whom fear is due; honor to whom honor is due” (Rom. 13:7). From My Catholic Faith. and My Catholic Faith on Amazon
Hopefully this week I do better than I did last week. I will be looking for opportunities where I can practice justice and I hope you will all join me.
Good luck to you all!
