The Seven Capital Sins
Pride, Covetousness, Lust, Anger, Gluttony, Envy, Sloth
By: Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration
The Seven Capital Sins. Everyone, unfortunately, will see himself described in the pages of this little book, since all our sins are traceable to these seven roots: Pride, Covetousness (Avarice), Lust, Anger, Gluttony, Envy and Sloth. The Seven Capital Sins explains the true nature, degrees, acts and family relationships (or connecting links) among these seven vices, and it gives the remedies and safeguards against them.
