7 Heavenly Virtues

The theme of diligence has been strong for me. I consider it key to our company’s success and key to my own personal success. As I created my 2010 “New Year” post and clarified my specific goals, I looked at the definition of Diligence per Wikipedia. The definition affirmed my understanding and I proceeded with my post.

What caught my eye, however, was the reference to the 7 heavenly virtues in Catholic catechism - and thus I wanted to revisit the topic. Disclosure: I am a baptized, confirmed Catholic who has, for all practical intents and purposes, rejected the Church. That said, I have always identified with many of the philosophical and moral values that many religions preach, even if I utterly reject the apparent hypocrisy and corruption that undoubtedly exists in any formal institution. 

It is these moral and philosophical points that I wish to consider.
