Liberty is the natural ability that humans have of deciding to act one way or another, which makes them solely responsible for their actions and consequences. In short, liberty means doing what one wants to do, doing what must be done; or, reversely speaking: doing what must be done, wanting to do it, above all possible difficulty and internal struggle.
It is the ability of requiring oneself to fulfil all set goals, to take responsibility to meet all deadlines within their time constraints, and to pay attention to detail so that all activities and tasks are finished correctly. It also consists of effective scheduling.
Inner strength ensures firmness against difficulties and perseverance in the pursuit of good, eventually leading to the acceptance of the possible sacrifice of one’s life for a just cause. Will is the ability that human beings possess which prompts us to do things intentionally, above all possible difficulty, setback, and mood.
It consists on putting the common good before one’s own. It helps us to respect others. This fellowship will exists when we are able to instil respect and friendship among all group members.
It is the personal condition which allows each person to best optimise their current situation, realistically or not. Maturing this virtue means being realistic and to consciously seek the positive side of things before focusing on the difficulties, or seeing what the difficulties themselves provide. Confidence is the basis of optimism. Thus, by being aware of the environment that surrounds them, they will realise they are daughters of God, always looking at the bright side of everyday life, with integrity and happiness.
It consists in giving things their fair value, handling our desires properly, and making moderate use of available goods and services (time, money, senses, ability to excel, etc.), of our behaviour, and of different approaches in life, without letting one be swept away by the detrimental short-term of genuine effort to find and live according to what is true and good for a person.
It is to search and recognise truth in oneself, in others, and in all things, and act in accordance to one’s thoughts and words. One must express truth whenever it is deemed appropriate, adequately and to the proper person.
Solidarity can be traced back to one of human being’s greatest qualities: generosity, which is the virtue of giving.Our students must learn not only to give away what is theirs, which is distinctive of righteousness, but also to offer what is theirs to those who lack it; learn that generosity goes beyond justice and that is also precedes it.
It consists of continuous professional development, in terms of diagnosing problems, techniques, resources, methodologies, and approaches, to become better fitted to live up to the Mission and Values that each person and/or institution sets themselves.
