Today, John and Sam are joined by a Benedictine Monk from Australia, Fr. Robert Nixon, to discuss this lost book, the first time ever translated in English, by St. Albert the Great. St. Albert breaks apart 42 virtues needed to live a happy and good life. We discuss counterfeit virtues which are actually vices, and how to be aware of these in your own life. This book breaks apart these virtues in a way that is accessible and motivating to all. We finish with a conversation of how to get started and how it is easier then you think.
