Fr. Rick Pilger, I.C.
A Thought for Each Day of the Year
By Blessed Antonio Rosmini
Although beauty is a trait of all virtues, nonetheless it belongs in a special way to chastity and humility. Chastity ensures that we do not sin against, by diminishing, the excellence of our nature, and humility prevents us from sinning against it by increasing it. Moral beauty belongs, therefore, in the highest degree to these two virtues.
