Catholic Word of the Day: INCENTIVE, 11-08-12 ^ | 11-08-12 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary

Posted on 11/08/2012 8:37:12 AM PST by Salvation

Featured Term (selected at random):


That which incites a person to action. It is different from motive, which is in the mind as a final cause or purpose for doing something or refraining from it. An incentive is in the will or feelings, as love or hate or disposition, and thus impelling (or appealing) one to act. Actual grace as inspiration may be described as a supernatural incentive.

Catholics nation wide voted 53% for Obama. I can't imagine what is going on. But, they may be getting an 'executive reward' that doesn't square with their values.

- so be it, I guess.
