The Seven Capital Sins, a tract produced by TAN Books, Rockford, IL: 2000 reprint, originally published by the Benedictine Convent of Perpetual Adoration, Clyde, MO.
This is a valuable little tract that discusses the "Seven Deadly [Capital] Sins," what they are and how to combat and overcome them.
I really need this book because I am guilty of so many of them. In fact, I am so guilty of the sin of pride that I am somewhat reluctant to post this review because I wonder about my motivation.
This little book has caused me to really wonder about my motivation for a lot of things, particularly my motivation for posting things on this web site. I really have to look at that, because I think I am motivated by the desire to look I know something. Sometimes I do (know something, that is); sometimes I don't; but that isn't the point. The point is my rotten desire to look like some kind of a bigshot. It stinks.
This little book has been like a mirror for me; but I'm not liking what I see. It's a good thing it also has suggestions for overcoming the Capital Sins.
What scares me is that I may not have the spiritual fortitude and wisdom to apply them.
Anyway, get this little book. It's a gut-wrencher.
