How does the virtue of faith make a difference to the life of a Christian? In this opening lecture of our Online Virtue Series, Theologian of the Papal Household and beloved Angelicum professor Fr. Wojciech Giertych, OP shows how faith is the spark that ignites the life of virtue. Drawing on the wisdom and clarity of the Thomistic tradition, Fr. Giertych explains where faith comes from, what it means to have living faith, and its power in the moral life and the life of prayer.
