"Seven Deadly Sins, Seven Lively Virtues" by Father Robert Barron



















Fr. Barron's "Seven Deadly Sins, Seven Lively Virtues" demonstrates how we can counteract our sinful patterns through a conscious focus on virtue. Here is a brief overview:

1.       Sin: Pride
·         Virtue: Humility-stay close to the earth.

2.       Sin: Envy
·         Virtue: Admiration-make a conscious effort to praise the goodness in others.

3.       Sin: Anger
·         Virtue: Forgiveness-take concrete steps to make amends, even if you were not at fault.

4.       Sin: Sloth
·         Virtue: Zeal- pray that God will reveal your mission, and then do it!

5.       Sin: Avarice 
·         Virtue: Generosity- deliberately give away something you hold dear.

6.       Sin: Gluttony
·         Virtue: Asceticism- be intentional about offering up your desires for a greater good.

7.       Sin: Lust
·         Virtue: Chastity- honor purity and holiness in yourself and others.
