Ethics - Intro

Transition to Christian Ethics

morality Knowledge based on human experience, reason, and God's revelation that discovers what we ought to be and what we ought to do to live fully human lives
gifts of the Holy Spirit God-given abilities that help us live a Christian life with God's help; wisdom, understanding, knowledge, counsel (right judgment), fortitude, piety (reverence), and fear of the Lord (wonder and awe)
fruits of the Holy Spirit Described as the firstfruits of eternal glory: charity, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, generosity, gentleness, faithfulness, modesty, self-control, and chastity
Magisterium The official teaching authority of the Church; the Lord bestowed the right and power to teach in his name on Peter and the apostles and their successors (i.e. pope and college of bishops)
virtues Firm attitudes, stable dispositions, habitual perfections of intellect and will that govern our actions, order our passions, and guide our conduct according to reason and faith
theological virtues Three important virtues bestowed on us at baptism that relate us to God: faith (belief in & personal knowledge of God), hope (trust in God's salvation & his bestowal of graces needed to attain it), and charity (love of God & love of neighbor as oneself)
cardinal virtues four hinge virtues that support moral living: prudence (responsible decision-making), fortitude (courage to persist in living Christian life), temperance (moderation in controlling desires for pleasure), justice (giving God and others their due by right)
