Snippet from the Show
The Advent season offers us an opportunity to meet Christ in a transformative way so he can fill the valleys in our souls and straighten our path to salvation.
Prepare the Way with Virtue
“Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths. Every valley shall be filled and every mountain and hill shall be made low. The winding roads shall be made straight, and the rough ways made smooth, and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.”– Luke 3:4-6

- Prudence,fortitiude, justice, and temperance are the four cardinal virtues that our lives hinge on.
- The virtues give us freedom to give ourselves as a gift of love to God and to others.
