This book is a short spiritual compendium on the Theological (Faith, Hope and Charity) and Cardinal (Prudence, Temperance, Fortitude, and Justice) virtues taken from various speeches and writings of Pope Benedict XVI. It is a nice book to have on retreat, to use in conjunction with spiritual direction and, generally speaking, to have as part of a person's spiritual life. As has become expected of the Pope, he has a great way of applying the deep meaning of our Catholic faith to general, pratical ways of living it out in our daily lives.
