The Church has settled on a list of 7 mortal sins but the Fathers of the Church more often referred to 8. The deadly or capital sins - covetousness, envy, sloth, gluttony, lust, anger, vainglory and pride - are the most significant and insidious temptations with which we must contend. A first step in countering their influence is understanding their psychological and spiritual roots in human experience. Standing humbly in the truth about ourselves, we will appreciate the power of God’s love to heal and strengthen our nature, for love is not jealous or boastful, not arrogant or rude, not irritable or resentful.

A clear, concise look at each of the eight deadly sins. What makes this booklet stand out is that it constantly refers back and forth to different well-known Catholic theologians, basing its arguments on long held opinions and looking at the differences and similarities between them.
