Uncommon Virtue: Everyday Methods for Attaining Spiritual Excellence

Fr. Raoul Plus – one of the most popular Catholic authors of the twentieth century – explains how the practice of everyday virtues — gratitude, moderation, patience in suffering, pity for the afflicted, making good use of time — is essential to producing supernatural benefits.

Filled with inspiring real-world examples of heroic men and women throughout history, this book teaches you how to develop the essential habits you need to become a saint in these times. You’ll learn how to develop an attitude of gratitude like the saints in Heaven and how to cultivate a spiritual life that will make you more productive. 

Through these true stories of valor, you will pick up the necessary wisdom to “work out” your salvation, through the grace of the sacraments, in accordance with your state in life. This commonsense approach to Catholic spirituality will help you become the saint you are meant to be. 

Although some souls are chosen to manifest heroism, Fr. Plus poses the question: “In our times, should not all souls be chosen souls or become such?” This book will show you how to help authentically transform the world, whether in sickness or in health. “Every Christian can be a redeemer, a savior, a repairer with Christ.” In fact, reflects Fr. Plus, they must be. He'll also show you the benefits of:

  • Thanking God, for growth in adoring love and for opening your heart to increased blessings
  • Cultivating interior silence and fostering receptivity to the gift of contemplation
  • Forfeiting time in order to reflect and focus on what is most important
  • Avoiding cowardice, boldly living the gospel, and enduring persecution
  • Offering up daily trials for our country, learning to overcome fear, and making sacrifices with joy
  • Making reparation to the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, who is often forgotten and unloved


Angelic Virtues and Demonic Vices: Aquinas's Practical Principles for Reaching Heaven and Avoiding Hell

Are we truly striving for heaven or merely avoiding hell? The human heart’s greatest longing is to see God as He is. And yet, many people simply want to escape hell’s pain, or even worse, they follow our disordered fallen nature in choosing sinful pleasures. Our Lord said the road to heaven is narrow, but the road to hell is wide (see Matt. 7:13). 

Is choosing the road to heaven merely wanting to avoid pain, or is it actively pursuing the greatest good beyond imagining? Do we choose the good because we strive to love God with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength, or do we choose the good merely because we fear hell?

God never leaves us alone in these choices. Indeed, He sends us His grace, but—to help us cooperate with that grace and fight valiantly—He also sends spiritual warriors and guides, of whom one of the greatest is Saint Thomas Aquinas. In Angelic Virtues and Demonic Vices, Saint Thomas guides us on how to pursue our true celestial homeland while avoiding running to a false heaven. He outlines the various vices, and their forty plus daughters, and details how to conquer them.

After reading this work, you will not only desire to become a saint because you will see how hideous vice truly is but also see how splendid virtuous living for God is.
