What is the theological virtue that empowers us to love God and to give god first place in your lives?
* I think that is 'Grace' , though probably your question could be clearer. * The virtue is certainly not theological. Love is essentially practical thing. * If the question is referring to a devout faithful approach, which is what it appears to be, then the above contributors are incorrect. Grace is incorrect, as it is merely part of a theological virtue. Specifically, the virtue of "Charity," and the question is by all means as clear as I, and most likely the asker, believe it should be. For the second contributor, the virtue is indeed theological. The theological virtue "that empowers us to love God and to give God first place in your lives" is none other than the the virtue of FAITH.
The theological virtue that enables us to believe in God?
The virtue that is above all others?
St. Paul tells us that the greatest of the three theological virtues is charity (1 Cor 13:13). The other virtues serve the theological virtues since the theological virtues are supernaturally implanted in us by God to assist us in collaborating in our salvation. The highest natural virtue is prudence (by which we know the best way to attain the best thing), because it guides all the other virtues. The foundation of every virtue is fortitude (perseverance) because virtues are only virtues when we persist in exercising them even in spite of hardship.

Is humanity the foundation of virtue?
Humanity is defined as "love, kindness, social intelligence blended together" by many people. Therefore, it cannot exactly called as the foundation of virtue. Virtue is the most refined quality/qualities in a human being. Therefore, humanity is not exactly the foundation of virtue(although humanity is a refined quality).

What do you hope for as Christians?
Roman Catholic Answer Hope, one of the three theological virtues, along with Faith and Charity, is the theological virtue by which we desire the kingdom of heaven and eternal life as our happiness, placing our trust in Christ's promises and relying not on our own strength, but on the help of the grace of the Holy Spirit. (from the Catechism, # 1817) 2090 When reveals Himself and calls him, man cannot fully respond to the divine love by his own powers. He must hope that God will give him the capacity to love Him in return and to act in conformity with the commandments of charity. Hope is the confident expectation of divine blessing and the beatific vision of God; it is also the fear of offending God's love and of incurring punishment.
