We all have vices. But do we use them to grow in virtue? Growing in Virtue, One Vice at a Time is a practical and insightful guide to removing vices and donning the virtues that reveal the image of Christ in us.

With her characteristic humor and authenticity, Sister Mary Lea—also known as the “Crabby Mystic”—takes readers on a fresh tour of the four cardinal virtues, seven Christian virtues, seven common vices or deadly sins, and the theological virtues of faith, hope, and love. By situating the virtues in relationship to vice, Sister Mary Lea supplies practical encouragement for the challenge of Christian living. If vice seems unavoidable, take heart: these short but powerful chapters are your antidote to spiritual discouragement and motivation to become more Christlike in your daily life.
