Book Cover Flap:
The scriptures of all faiths contain voluminous references to the value and necessity of virtues. The knowledge of virtues is a light that glows in lands and in hearts where love and goodness are cherished and expressed. Individuals and nations that recognize and follow this light are mankind’s hope for the present and for the future.
The welfare and survival of a nation are dependent upon the integrity of its leaders and the moral character of its people. The success and happiness of a marriage are determined by the love and virtues of husband and wife. The enlightenment of a spiritual aspirant occurs in direct degree to the purity of his love and the sacramental expression of virtues.
Ann Ree Colton stated, "Jonathan Murro’s writing involves one with his ecstasy. The virtue he is writing about is the power within the heart of grace. Such virtue heals the mass energized coagulations of evil and wrongdoing. This virtue gives off the aroma of soul-exquisiteness, gives the balm of mind peace, gives the transfusion of strength and mastery over weakness."

"The commandments revealed by Moses and Jesus are the Rosetta Stone for mankind's decoding the hieroglyphics of the heavens. Each commandment is a law of harmony seeking to unite life on earth with the Intelligence of God creating the stars and the galaxies."
"Even as a high-powered telescope reveals new and greater ranges of the Universe, so do sanctified virtues act as high-powered telescopes through which the consciousness mind may perceive Cosmos Truths and eternal verities."
