Responsible action helped by virtues

Responsibility > Entrusted to man
Responsible action is linked to virtues such as prudence and provision.
The concept of prudence today evokes a fearful and negative attitude in the face of action, but originally it is the virtue of personal responsibility, of the conscious risk taken for the resolution, which prescribes good action in any situation, with thoughtful choices and without rush by impulse or passion.
Prudence is the intellectual virtue that leads to living and behaving well with just means, affections and desires that arise from reflexes or thoughts.
The natural inclination to provide things is a lawful concern because of the conditioning of the world; however, shared or undivided goods avoid selfishness: almsgiving, charity and restitution are virtuous acts of justice, which become a subject of merit for eternal life. -  email:
