Women of Virtue: Women in the Bible and What They Teach Us
Retreat Leader: Fr. John Pfister
Saint Thomas Aquinas taught virtue is a good habit that “disposes an agent to perform its proper operation or movement.” Virtues lead us to reason well and make us tend towards moral living. Aquinas taught four ‘Cardinal’ virtues, from which other virtues flow: prudence, justice, temperance, and courage. The Bible is rich with examples of women who personify virtue. This seminar will reflect and discuss examples of Biblical women of virtue and the message they leave for women of today.
Father John Pfister is a graduate of Indiana University, University of Southern Indiana, and Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology. Seminary formation included every elective credit in Biblical Theology. Elder care, prison/jail care, and hospital care have been primary to his ministry. Prior to priesthood, Fr. John worked as a bank officer for 30 years and as an adjunct for Vincennes University for 15 years. His current assignment is St. Mary in Sullivan, Indiana and St. Joan of Arc in Jasonville, Indiana.
