How to Master 12 Essential Virtues in 12 Months

On every page Cultivating Virtue imparts the true spirit of the Catholic Faith. This book takes 12 Christian virtues—one for each month, with a reading for each day of the year—and shows you how to master each one. Featuring episodes and sayings from the lives of the Saints, it covers Perfection, Humility, Mortification, Patience, Meekness, Confidence, and Charity, among others.

Master the virtues and set out on your road to becoming a saint by learning directly from the great saints, such as St. Francis de Sales, St. Teresa of Avila, St. Vincent de Paul, St. John of the Cross, St. Jane Frances de Chantal, St. John Chrysostom, and many others.

Cultivating Virtue possesses the unique quality of touching the soul with just a few paragraphs and putting a person in tune with God’s view of our affairs. The reader can pick it up for a few moments and gain incomparable inspiration. This is one of the most moving and powerful Catholic books ever written and one that will enflame the reader with the love of God and desire for true Christian perfection.

Cultivating Virtue was formerly published by TAN Books as A Year with the Saints: A Virtue for Every Month of the Year.

The original text has been re-typeset as an attractive daily meditation. The new trim size is 5”x7”. It is bound in a Premium UltraSoft cover, with a ribbon marker and gold edges. Personalization is available.

    Grow a little each day

    It can be so overwhelming thinking of all the areas we need to grow in. This book breaks the virtues down so that we only focus on one each month. Then within the month we look at one aspect of that virtue through the eyes and experience of those that have gone before us¶ the Saints. It only came leather bound so it was bit more expensive but this book will be a treasure to me for a long time, it was worth it!
