"Virtue without prudence is not virtue..." St. Faustina

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The following entry from St. Faustina’s “Diary” is very good advice for all of us:

  1. Virtue without prudence is not virtue at all. We should often pray to the Holy Spirit for this grace of prudence. Prudence consists in discretion, rational reflection, and courageous resolution. The final decision is always up to us. We must decide; we can and we ought to seek advice and light…

Ah, the wisdom God gives His saints, not only for themselves but that they may share with us all the gifts He gives them to build up the Body of Christ in love.
