Some Rare Virtues
by Raoul Plus, SJ
Some virtues are more rare than others
"Intended...for souls of good will who have met with difficulties in their attempts at spiritual growth." - Books on Trial
During the first half of the 20th century Father Raoul Plus, S.J. (1882-1958) ranked among the most popular Catholic authors. He wrote more than forty books on the spiritual life, and found a broad international readership that ranged from ordinary layfolk to cloistered nuns.
What was the secret of Father Plus’s success? Brilliantly simple. He offered his readers practical advice on how they could deepen their faith and grow in holiness at exactly the same time. Some Rare Virtues is Father Plus at his best, as he explains how the practice of everyday virtues - gratitude, moderation, patience in suffering, pity for the afflicted, making good use of time - can produce supernatural benefits.
Let Father Plus show you...
How to get into the habit of thanking God for all the blessings He showers upon you every moment of every day
Why "the most favorable moment" to express our gratitude is immediately after receiving Holy Communion
The benefits of enjoying a few periods of silence every day
How cultivating the interior life can make you more productive
Sensible ways to keep in contact with God all day long - but without shirking your other obligations
What Our Lord meant when He instructed us to "pray always"
How to live in a state of prayer while still performing your day-to-day tasks
The spiritual dangers of trying to do too much
The difference between making good use of time and an obsession with saving time
Why good manners are the basis of true charity
How to recognize empty worldly obligations, and eliminate them from your schedule
The benefits of leisure, and what distinguishes it from loafing
Why negligence is the root of so many sins
Why even religious devotion benefits from the virtue of moderation
How excessive religious zeal can be counter-productive, and even harmful
How to be generous, but still be sensible
The difference between the type of courage that consists in doing, and the type of courage that consists in enduring
The hazards of worrying about troubles that haven’t arrived yet (and may never come)
How to make the best use of the graces God sends you in prayer, the Mass, and the sacraments
How to bear patiently everything from petty annoyances, to irritating people, to serious illness
The most effective way to practice reparation - for yourself and for others
