Amoris Laetitia is a document written by Pope Francis that has become somewhat infamous among certain parts of the Catholic Church. Most of this attention is over Chapter 8 of an otherwise quite long work. What is interesting as Bishop Barron points out are the Chapters 7-9 which give attention to Virtue. What is virtue? Virtue is those good things which we practice over and over again such as a 'good habit'. To grow in virtue one must be patient and hopeful in completing a particular good deed over and again with the aid of God's grace.
This video is definitely worth watching a few times, but it is a good reflection on Virtue and our modern age.
"In the solitude and silence of the wilderness..., for their labor in the contest, God gives his athletes the reward they desire: a peace that the world does not know and joy in the Holy Spirit."
