2.2.3 Application/Discussion

Secondary virtues make day-to-day interactions simpler. 

Secondary virtues are small expressions of charity. They are also an expression of esteem for others (e.g. an expression of “treating others as you wish to be treated). 

  • Tardiness is theft of another’s time 
  • Tardiness is pride: the other person is assessed as “less” than yourself

Problem area: Secondary virtues have a tendency to become a source of petty legalism.
