By Bishop Fulton J. Sheen
Anger, envy, lust, pride, gluttony, sloth and covetousness are the seven capital, or deadly, sins so often spoken of by theologians in the past. They are hardly mentioned today in a society become inured to the whole idea of sin. Yet, as Fulton Sheen makes clear in his inimitable way, these sins are very real and hold very real consequences for our happiness in this world and in the next. Jesus atoned for each one of these deadly sins on the Cross and addressed them individually in the words he spoke as he hung there dying. In a series of eight addresses Sheen shows how, when we make God the enemy, we can never be sure that we have won the day. When God is our ally, as He was on the Cross, we can be sure that the victory is ours. These brief meditations are as applicable to us and to our world today as they were back in 1939 when they were first penned.
