How virtues drive out vice

Reviewing material for my final exam tomorrow morning…. wow, I have so much to learn.  And I’m not talking about the exam (though that sentiment is true for the exam too).

This is taken from the Fraciscan Rule

1. Where there is charity and wisdom

            there is neither fear nor ignorance.

   2. Where there is patience and humility,

           there is neither anger nor disturbance.

   3. Where there is poverty with joy,

           there is neither covetousness nor avarice.

   4. Where there is inner peace and meditation,

            there is neither anxiousness nor dissipation.

   5. Where there is fear of the Lord to guard the house (cf. Lk. 11:21), 

there the enemy cannot gain entry.

   6. Where there is mercy and discernment,

           there is neither excess nor hardness of heart.
