Seven Deadly SIns, Seven Lively Virtues
JOIN US FOR A OUR NEWEST ADULT FAITH FORMATION PROGRAM, April – May 2023
Seven Deadly Sins, Seven Lively Virtues
From: Word on Fire, Presented by: Bishop Robert Barron
The seven deadly sins correspond to the seven levels of Dante’s Mt. Purgatory in the Divine Comedy: Pride, envy, anger, sloth, gluttony, avarice, and lust. These common sins are patterns of dysfunction within us that lead to unhappiness. However, Bishop Barron shows us how to work against these seven sinful patterns through a conscious process of opposition, which are the “seven lively virtues." These offer antidotes to each sin and help set us on the right path to healing and happiness. After the last session, participation in the Sacrament of Reconciliation is suggested.
We will conduct this study in seven (7) 90-minute sessions which includes the weekly 15-20-minute video; session overviews; questions & responses; and, discussion points. Our program will be offered on Wednesday mornings from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30, April 12 through May 24 and will be IN-PERSON ONLY in the Christian Formation Center (CFC 31-33).
