THIS WEEK’SREFLECTION QUESTIONS:

ad VICE for living

Faith-based reflection on the virtues and vices

 

  1. When     you look “in the mirror” at your heart, you mind, and you life, what do     you see? What aspects of your character have been areas of persistent     struggle for you?

 

  1. How     accustomed are you to the language of virtue and vice? Is talk about     character formation or spiritual formation a foreign or familiar way to     think about the “old self” and the “new self”?

 

  1. Whom do     you envision when you picture Christlike or virtuous character? Why might     it be important in our character formation to have before us a positive     vision of a virtuous life?
