Virtues, Theological

In case you want a little background on this week’s Quiz Game questions:

The theological virtues are the foundation of Christian moral activity; they animate it and give it its special character.  They inform and give life to all the moral virtues.  They are infused by God into the souls of the faithful to make them capable of acting as his children and meriting eternal life.  They are the pledge of the Holy Spirit in the faculties of the human being.  There are three theological virtues: faith, hope, and charity.  Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1813

The supernaturally infused “good habits” of faith, hope, and charity, having God as their object and motive.  Faith enables one to accept the truths revealed by God on the basis of His authority; hope allows one to anticipate eternal life by trusting in God and His grace; charity impels one to love God, oneself, and others for His sake.  -Catholic Dictionary (Stravinskas)
