S02 E09 Christian Virtue 101 (Tobit Ch.7)
ABOUT THIS EPISODE
The Book of Tobit, Chapter 7 reveals yet another virtuous man -- Raguel. What are his virtues? What purpose do the virtues serve? What message is Scripture revealing to us? In this episode, I take a closer look at Virtue, and reflect on it from a Christian perspective.
The Bible I am reading from is the New American Bible online version taken from the USCCB website: https://bible.usccb.org/bible/tobit/7. For the Book of Tobit, I also refer to the online version of Douay-Rheims Bible – which is a translation from the Latin Vulgate, while the NAB is translated from the Septuagint or the Greek version.
What is a virtue?
What is Scripture and the Church revealing to us?
What is a moral virtue accorfing to St Thomas Aquinas?
What are the 4 Cardinal Virtues?
