Virtue of the Week focuses on building peaceful and caring communities through understanding and fostering the practice of virtues. The Source supports the Virtues Project and will publish one virtue developed by the project each week.


Faith is a relationship of trust. It is believing in the reality of Grace. We are confident that our life has a purpose. We believe in ourselves, knowing we

were created with love. Faith is the wind in the sails of our dreams. It gives us the strength to go on, not succumbing to doubt, fear or hopelessness

As we move forward, we are guided to the right path without having to make it happen. Even in the most trying times, we are open to miracles.

Quote: “It is with the heart that one can see rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eye.” from “The Little Prince” by Antoine De Saint Exuprey

I am prayerful in all times and conditions.

I make discerning decisions.

I allow faith to guide my course.

I am receptive to wonders.

It blesses me always.
