Virtue

“If we see virtue as simply the right way to live, no matter what the cost, then virtue is scared. Virtue is the door into the sacred sanctuary because virtue is not a consumer product, it is not just a refuge from our anxieties nor a pause from a busy life, not something we can purchase in order to relieve the symptoms of modern life. Virtue is the recognition of the sacred in daily life. As we open the door of virtue in our personal and working lives, we will open the way into a sanctuary of peace for ourselves and for others. We are enabled to lead a unified life with the same values at home and at work, a life that is transparent and has nothing to hide.’
Finding Sanctuary, Abbot Christopher Jamison
