Perfection Again and The Virtues

Thanks to Wiki for Painting

Some readers have asked about how to develop the virtues. I have parsed out some of Garrigou-Lagrange's advice in the perfection series. One can also use the labels of virtues.

There is another author I can highly recommend, but his book is difficult to find.
