Youcat commented through CCC – Question n. 306.

YOUCAT Question n. 306 - Why are faith, hope, and charity virtues?

(Youcat answer) Faith, hope, and charity, too, are genuine powers-bestowed by God, of coursethat a person can develop and consolidate with the grace of God so as to obtain “the abundant life” (see Jn 10:10).

A deepening through CCC

(CCC 1841) There are three theological virtues: faith, hope, and charity. They inform all the moral virtues and give life to them.

Reflecting and meditating 

(CCC Comment)

(CCC 1840) The theological virtues dispose Christians to live in a relationship with the Holy Trinity. They have God for their origin, their motive, and their object - God known by faith, God hoped in and loved for his own sake.  

(The next question is: What is faith?)
