Featured Term (selected at random):


The virtue that moderates anger and its disorderly effects. It is a form of temperance that controls every inordinate movement of resentment at another person's character or behavior.

KEYWORDS: beatitudes; catholic
I think many Americans tend to think of meekness as a weakness rather than a strength. (And it is definitely a strength, when one confronts his/her own anger or tendencies to be angry.)
