Do You Know What God Is Asking of You?
These are difficult times, but great virtue is formed during great hardship.
God is pouring out His graces upon you right now. He gives us everything we need to be extraordinary!
And He’s calling YOU to deeper holiness. He’s calling YOU to sainthood and eternal life.
Will you answer His call?
Yes, YOU are Called to Be Holy
God wants you to be with Him forever in heaven.
But that takes more than prayer…it takes virtue.
And becoming more virtuous doesn’t happen overnight.
Virtues are good habits. They take time. They’re something you build, one small step at a time.
That’s why you need to start now!
In this 21-day series, we’ll show you what virtue really is (not what we think it is), how to build specific virtues that will help you cooperate with God’s grace, and tell you the story of a saint who developed that particular virtue in a special way.
Virtue takes intentionality, but there is so much to gain from it. Everything, in fact!
What You’ll Get
Heroic Virtue is not an academic study. It’s a plan of life established for you by those who’ve already achieved holiness and virtue: the saints!
You will learn
- What virtue is, and what growth in virtue really looks like
- How to be kind and loving without being a doormat
- The different types of virtue and how they help us grow closer to God
- How being virtuous makes it possible you to live a truly balanced life
- How to grow in 17 different virtues, as lived out by a real-life saint
- How challenges, obstacles, and crisis have produced amazing men and women
“We’re all called to be great saints. Don’t miss the opportunity.”
Virtue is for saints…and we’re all called to be saints.

Thank you Father Reid for another Great Series. I will be doing this again and taking notes so much information and you have taught me a lot about the Roots of your sinful ways and how to correct them. Thank you,Good Catholic,Father Reid,and The Catholic Company. It would really make a Great Bible Study.
I love this series! It has been a great “answer” to some of the rough spots I encountered in “The Last Four Things.” Both have helped me get “back on my journey towards Holiness.” I’ve still got a long way to go but thank you for the navigation! I’d been going at it all the wrong way.
There is a significant amount of information each day and I wish my mind would hold onto it better but I am absolutely loving this series. It seems to be tugging at my heart and I’m committed to staying with it. God’s blessings to all – such a joy walking this journey with you.
I do appreciate these series that the Catholic Company puts together for us to enrich the depth and understanding of our Catholicism.
Good Catholic is filling a void that needed to be filled. I pray that we all get what we need from this study
I am very excited to do this series. Fr. Reid touches my heart and draws me in. I love the first day! I love the prayer to the Blessed Mother. This is so timely at a time of grief and loss in my life.
Each time I do a series, I learn so much. In this series, today’s lessons on the virtues has me thinking.
I’ve done all of [the series] so far. The Last Four Things was the most thought provoking for me. All have been great. Love Father Reid. He’s very inspiring.
This will be my 3rd series with Good Catholic. Fatima literally brought me back to Mary and praying the rosary daily. The Four Last Things was spine tingling! It gave me a holy fear of purgatory and hell. Thankfully it wrapped up with the love and mercy of Jesus. I wish each of my fellow travelers much love and wisdom as we journey together.
Wow what a lesson! I have been told we need to find the root of our sins to avoid sin. This lesson is helping me to understand the roots on our sins. Father Reid you are a wonderful teacher and how blessed your parish is in having you as their leader.
What an incredible lesson! I am so very grateful to be doing this series.
This is my first series and I am excited by the content I am learning so much already. There was a suggestion to take notes as I go – wow, 11 pages of notes over 3 days!
