The Seven Capital Sins by Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration
The Seven Capital Sins is an essential book for self-knowledge and spiritual progress. Each reader will find insights into the particular deadly weaknesses of his own soul: Pride, Covetousness (Avarice), Lust, Anger, Gluttony, Envy and Sloth. Plus he will learn the effective remedies for each of these, the seven roots of evil that exist within all of us as a result of original sin, so that he can then make serious efforts to follow Our Lord's challenging imperative: "Be you therefore perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect" (Mat 5:48). The desired result is the salvation of souls and peace in the world.
