How do I grow in virtue and holiness in order to build up the Body of Christ? Virtues must be pursued, acquired, and cultivated. St. Thomas Aquinas described the life of virtue as a “climb [up a ladder] from the many to the One.”
"If you are what you should be, you will set the whole world on fire," St. Catherine of Siena said. "Let the truth be your delight.... Proclaim it... with a certain congeniality."
