CAFOD Live Simply - On Friday, 27 October, 7pm, there will be a livesimply event at the St. Richard Reynolds Centre in Exeter, organised by the Blessed Sacrament parish. There will be a talk on Pope Francis' encyclical ‘Laudato Si’ delivered by Fr Jonathan Stewart, followed by an introduction to the livesimply initiative that seeks to promote a practical response to the encyclical within Catholic communities. 

 Keeping in touch with the Chaplaincy - Please like our Facebook Page and follow us on Twitter for regular updates. We've also started a Chaplaincy blog where you can get information about what's happening at the Chaplaincy, as well as some intermittent doses of spiritual refreshment.

Crux - Thank you to those who cam last Wednesday and provided such interesting discussion. The second session takes place on Wednesday at 7.30ppm. This week we will be discussing 'The Church' and will be discussing the role of the Pope, our relationship with other Faiths and asking what is meant when we say 'outside the Church there is no salvation'. All are welcome even if you were not able to make the previous week.

Ask a Theologian - If you have a question about Catholic faith, practice, or morals, please email me by midday on Friday and the answer will be included in the Sunday newsletter. Don't worry, the questions will be completely anonymous.

 

This week's question: What do we mean when we talk about virtue? A virtue (or lack thereof) is a character trait that shows something very important about a person. In Catholic theology, the concept of a “virtue” refers to a pattern of behaviour showing a certain depth of moral character. In general, virtues are respected by most cultures and in reality demonstrate submission to the natural law. These virtues were respected long before the advent of Christianity and include such things as courage, temperance, justice and prudence. Even after the revelation of Christ, these positive character traits were not dismissed, but have come to have greater meaning in light of the Gospel. In addition to these “human” virtues, there are three theological (or supernatural) virtues, which St Paul proposes as the blueprint for a wholesome Christian life. These are Faith, Hope and Charity. Each of these is essential too if we wish to have a truly Christian character and needs to be the basis of our lives as Catholics.
