Transcript of Katniss Everdeen

Cardinal virtue
strength of character
firmness in difficulties
constant in pursuit of good
"The virtue of fortitude enables one to conquer fear, even fear of death, and to face trials and persecutions. It disposes one even to renounce and sacrifice his life in defense of a just cause" (CCC 1808). Before Baptism, Katniss exhibited the virtue of Fortitude.
After her Baptism, Katniss is now infused with the Gifts of the Holy Spirit along with the Supernatural virtues. Katniss Everdeen By. Alyssa Salter, Maddie Gatto, and Madison Auer About Katniss From District 12
She takes her sisters place in the Hunger Games and becomes the female tribute for District 12.
She has a great ability to hunt.
Her knowledge of archery and experience in the wild help her and Peeta to prospure in the Hunger Games. Characteristics: Caring
Loyal Fortitude Example One:
Katniss Showing Fortitude Katniss volunteers as tribute to take her sister, Prim's place in the Hunger Games.
She sacrificed her life for her sister, knowing that she could very well die in the Hunger Games.
This shows her strength in character as well as her sacrificing love for her sister. Example Two:
Katniss Showing Fortitude When Peeta is close to death in the Hunger Games, Katniss nurses him back to well being after his leg has nearly been ripped off.
Even though Katniss did not know Peeta very well, she showed strength and courage when taking care of him. After Her Baptism Gift of the Holy Spirit: Fortitude Before her Baptism, Katniss used her fortitude to keep firmness and stay calm in her difficulties.
After her Baptism, because of her fortitude, Katniss is now able to use her courage in a way that gives her strength to fulfill the will of God.
She is also able to defend what she believes. Theological Virtue:
Hope "By hope we desire, and with steadfast trust await from God, eternal life and the graces to merit it" (CCC 1843).
After her Baptism, Katniss begins to believe in herself and has the hope that she can make it out alive of the Hunger Games. Katniss as champion of the Hunger Games Lacking in Virtue of... Katniss lacked in the virtue of prudence.
"Prudence is the virtue that disposes practical reason to discern our true good in every circumstance and to choose the right means of achieving it." (CCC, 1806) Supernatural virtue:
Hope Hope corresponds with the virtue of courage.
Hope means a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain event to happen.
In order to have the strength to persevere in difficulties, you must believe that the future will be brighter. Hope In the first example, Katniss volunteers as tribute for her sister in the Hunger Games.
After this, Katniss is extremely distressed and realizes that she may die and never see her family again.
If Katniss had exhibited the supernatural virtue of hope, she would have placed her trust in God and relied on his grace. Hope In the second example, Katniss worries that Peeta will not survive, and frantically tries to fix his injured leg.
If Katniss had exhibited the supernatural virtue of hope, she would have trusted in God's grace and mercy to know that Peeta would be okay. Example One: At the end of the Hunger Games, both Peeta and Katniss are left.
Katniss and Peeta realize that only one of them can win.
Katniss resolves that they should both eat poisonous berries, so there will be no winner of the Hunger Games. Supernatural Virtue:
Faith By not having the cardinal virtue of prudence, Katniss also lacks in the supernatural virtue of faith.
From the example, if Katniss had shown the supernatural virtue of faith, she would not have faltered with her future and resolved to commit suicide with Peeta by eating the poisonous berries. Lacking Virtue:
Faith "Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen" (CCC,146).
After her Baptism, Katniss lacks in her faith.
For example, even after Katniss has survived the Hunger Games, she fears what her future will hold for her and if she will be able to see her family again. A New Faith... If Katniss had faith she would not have worried after she was out of the Hunger Games.
Katniss would have seen how God protected her before in the Hunger Games.
With this new faith, Katniss would not have feared the future or what it held for her. Saint Katniss Everdeen After becoming a saint, Katniss is now infused with the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
She now has perfected the virtues of fortitude and faith. Faith After becoming a saint, Katniss now has perfected the virtue of faith.
Because of her new faith in herself and in God, Katniss believes in herself more, and trusts that God has a plan for her.
With this virture, Katniss now will "walk by faith, not by sight" (CCC 164). Katniss has now perfected the virtue of fortitude.
She receives the strength in character that allows her to sustain the obstacles in her life, which include death, hunger, and poverty.
With this courage, Katniss now sees and faces the world in an entirely positive way.
Because Katniss put all of her trust in God, she has the strength to face her hardships. Fortitude
