      And I say to you, Whoever puts away his wife for any other cause than the loss of her virtue, and takes another, is a false husband: and he who takes her as his wife . This is appropriate, and not to feel sorrow at the loss of a good – whether my own good or that of another – would be callous and inhumane. Sorrow does, however, raise a distinctive challenge to virtue, insofar as it erodes my ability to endure, and in so doing weakens my engagement in needful activities.

      I love this book (!) because Mary Cooney 'gets' motherhood: "Feeling inadequate is a wonderful place to begin!" she says. Drawing on the wisdom of Scripture, the Catechism, the Popes, the Saints, and Church History, and packed full of Mary's own personal experience and story, "Evangelizing Our Children with Joy" is a wonderful combination of the lofty and the practical, and is a treasure trove. It is the virtue which enables us to face difficulties well in the preservation or pursuit of the good.

Next I ask my interviewees whom they think could use greatness of soul today. Many mention our leaders in government, business or the media, and complain that these leaders have become nothing more than trolls who draw us into a downward spiral.
