Freedom and truth

“We must give [our humanity] the clean air of freedom and the life-giving water of truth. We must protect it from the poison of selfishness and falsehood. Then a great variety of virtues will be able to blossom in the soil of our humanity.” — Pope Francis

Which of the cardinal virtues — the habits of prudence, temperance, fortitude, and justice — have you developed most in your life? Which would you like to study further or practice in new ways?
