In our prayers, we often ask for help to put into practice what we learn The constant challenges we face daily often prevent us from living up to this ambition. Plato identifies universal properties of all being that reveal to us our ultimate desires: to believe what is true, to choose what is good and to love what is beautiful. By exercising our mind, will and heart we become aware of our imitation of God, form our conscience to judge our choices correctly and love things properly by seeing their lasting beauty. In this way we start to make slow but steady changes that show us the way to become the kind of people we were meant to be.
