In the second half of the show, Fr. Greg spoke about the dos and don’ts of dating. Fr. Greg said we should treat dating as a means to an end, and that end is marriage. He went through the 5 stages you would go through to get married: 1) being single 2) dating 3) courting 4) engaged 5) married.

095 Fr. Greg Gerhart: The Cardinal Virtue of Temperance
On Wednesday, November 21, 2018, host Pam Marvin spoke over the phone with Fr. Greg Gerhart, the current associate pastor at St. Mary's Catholic Center in College Station, Texas. What is temperance and from where does it come? St. Thomas Aquinas wrote, “The entire structure of good works is built on four virtues…[and] the passions need a curb, which we call Temperance.” Fr. Greg had a lot to explain about the foundation of temperance, how to increase it, and even how to draw on the sacrament of confession as an aid to growing in temperance.
