The Art of Living
Temperance: A Gloomy Virtue?
The virtue of temperance sometimes gets a bad reputation.
As the virtue that "moderates the attraction of pleasures" (Catechism of the Catholic Church: Second Edition, no. 1809), many people today object to such a notion: "What’s wrong with seeking pleasure?" "Experiencing pleasure is not bad. I’m not hurting anyone!" "Shouldn’t I be able to pursue as much pleasure as I can?"
