Fortitude and Patient Endurance - Deep in Christ Ep. 19

March 25, 2021

“He who endures to the end will be saved.” -Matthew 10:22

JonMarc and Fr. Peter Grodi continue discussing the virtue of Fortitude, looking this week at the first of two main aspects: endurance and attack. Patient endurance of difficulty and evil is part and parcel of the Christian life. But there is a whole lot more to patience than we commonly think...

On this episode of Deep in Christ, hosts JonMarc Grodi and Fr. Peter Grodi continue discussing the virtue of Fortitude, or “courage”, the cardinal virtue by which we do the hard, right thing, even though it’s hard, because it is right.

This week they look a little deeper at the ways in which courage is often tempted to — but must NOT— rely on itself for direction or strength. Courage must always refer back to true discernment of reality — and hence to the exercise of Prudence — in order to ensure that it is working toward the realization of the good (Justice) and not, in a moment of passion, merely pursuing selfish ends.

The Cardinal Virtue of Fortitude — Deep in Christ, Ep. 17

March 11, 2021

On this episode of Deep in Christ, hosts JonMarc Grodi and Fr. Peter Grodi kick off a series of episodes about the virtue of Fortitude, also more commonly called “courage”.

Fortitude is the cardinal virtue by which we do the hard, right thing, even though it’s hard, simply because it is right.

Drawing from the work of philosopher Josef Pieper, they look at the fundamental connection between fortitude and human vulnerability (Angels can’t be brave!) and how Christian martyrdom elucidates the true nature of this crucial virtue.

More Thoughts on the Virtue of Justice — Deep in Christ, Ep. 16

March 4, 2021

On this episode of Deep in Christ, Fr. Peter and I are back to finish up our discussion of the cardinal virtue of Justice, the habit of soul by which we readily recognize the web of relationships in which we live, order these relationships into a proper hierarchy, and then to act rightly in accord with each.

Justice is “to give each his due,” beginning, of course, with what is due to God Almighty. In this episode we dig deeper into the order/hierarchy of justice, the “virtuous cycle” (how practice of any of the virtues strengthen and deepen the others), the spiritual (vs human) economy, and the holy sacrifice of the Mass.

We’ve been having a great time discussing one of our favorite topics (virtue) and we hope you’ll join us for this next part of the discussion!
