This essay provides an introduction to the relation of habitus as a concept to Catholic ethical thinking and the philosophy of Thomas Aquinas in particular, and it argues in the first half that habitus plays a central role in Thomas's thought and Catholic ethics in general. The second half of the article then addresses three contemporary challenges: the challenge that our sense of teleology is a mistaken biological byproduct, the challenge denying conceptions of natural kinds, and the challenge of the is-ought distinction. Catholic virtue ethics is able to meet these challenges, and it provides a superior account compared to naturalistic alternatives.
