STARTING WITH FAITH FORMATION ON SUNDAYS AND WEDNESDAYS

55 MINUTES: 7 DEADLY SINS, 7 LIVELY VIRTUES from Word on Fire

Join Bishop Robert Barron for this engaging presentation concerning the seven deadly sins, those great spiritual blocks that inhibit our flourishing in relationship with God and one another.

Based on Dante’s writings, the seven deadly sins correspond to the seven levels of Dante’s Mt. Purgatory.  Pride, envy, anger, sloth, gluttony, avarice, and lust are all presented as patterns of dysfunction within us that lead to unhappiness.

However, Bishop Barron shows us how to counteract these seven sinful patterns through a conscious process of opposition, which are the “seven lively virtues." The seven lively virtues offer antidotes to each sin and help set us on the right path to healing and happiness.
