VBRD (Virtue-Based Restorative Discipline)

Welcome to a spiritual appraoch to changing the world!

VBRD has two primary goals:

1. Decrease antisocial behaviors
2. Increase in faith practices

A virtue is an habitual and firm disposition to do the good.
It allows the person not only to perform good acts, but to give the best of himself.
The virtuous person tends toward the good with all his sensory and spiritual powers;
he pursues the good and chooses it in concrete actions. The goal of a virtuous life is to become like God.
(The Catechism of the Catholic Church 1803)
