The Cardinal Virtue of Temperance
Enables one to be moderate in the pleasure and use of created goods
- Temperance moderates one’s desires and pleasures
- It is concerned with the greatest sensible pleasures that attract man: eating, drinking (pleasures of the table), and sexual gratification
- Temperance strikes a balance: It does not destroy passions but moderates them
- The morally immature person is unreasonable and resistant to correction
