Ep. 5 – Sanguines: Know Your Temperament; Know Your Path to Holiness

sanguine path to holiness

Sanguines are the life of the party.

They are extroverted, with a lot of friends, are optimistic, scatter-brained, and do not hold grudges.

A sanguine soul must cultivate a love of meditation, so that they can focus on spiritual instead of temporal things.

Today, we take a look at the sanguine section of Rev. Conrad Hock’s the Four Temperaments, as we study the sanguine’s path to holiness.


In this Episode

  • A sanguine must reflect on spiritual things.
  • Instead of “winging” it, a sanguine must learn to plan for all possibilities.
  • He must practice mortification of the senses.
  • He must look for good influences and accept direction and counsel.
  • Spiritual aridity purifies him.
  • He must struggle against his bad traits, such as vanity, love of friendships, jealousy, levity and superficiality
