Taught by one of Catholicism’s great professors, this course will help you live a better life.

Fr. Dennis Billy holds three doctorate degrees and has published forty books, but his humble approach to teaching and quiet wisdom will make him one of your favorite professors. This is much more than just a theology and philosophy course: it’s an invitation to grow and deepen your friendship with God.

Central to the work of Aristotle and other great philosophers, the “good life” is one of the most fundamental aspects of humanity’s search for meaning. Now, you can explore the good life in the Catholic tradition. By reflecting upon the good life, you’ll deepen your friendship with God, strengthen your relationships with others, and find greater personal purpose.

After exploring how the Trinity imbues life with meaning, you’ll reflect upon conscience and how it helps us discern between good and evil. You’ll also turn to scripture, learning how the Ten Commandments and Beatitudes provide blueprints for the good life.

Following an in-depth study of the cardinal and theological virtues, you’ll see how prayer can help you overcome evil and how living in the Spirit leads to happiness. Finally, you’ll explore the threefold path of purgation, illumination, and transforming union.

The Good Life: A Course on Moral Theology will inspire and guide you. Begin this essential journey today.

Excellent overview of a subject poorly understood in society and unfortunately by many in the Church Review by Scott Brantley, Colorado Springs, Colorado (Posted on 12/15/2017)
2015 Spring Survey
The courses are well structured and well organized. I was able to read the gospel just after I listened to the lecture and I got so much more out of lesson. Review by Rev. George E. Dunn, Highlands Ranch, Colorado (Posted on 5/20/2015)
