Personification of the Cardinal Virtues

Virtue - ἀρετή (excellence)[1] - is a moral disposition that makes one a better person.[2] There are four classes of virtues: cardinal virtues, human or moral virtues, gifts of the Holy Spirit, and theological or Christian virtues.[3] The cardinal virtues are the greatest of the human virtues,[4] while the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the theological virtues are divine or supernatural dispositions that animate the Christian life[5] and make one docile to God.[6] Jesus Christ enjoyed all the virtues to a perfect degree, and as such Christians must strive to become perfect like him.[7]
