7 Deadly Sins and 7 Lively Virtues
Meetings will be on Wednesday evenings during Lent March 12, 19 and April 2, 9* McNeely Hall 100 from 8:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.
Enrich your Lenten Meditation with a Spiritual Study on The Seven Deadly Sins and Seven Lively Virtues. Sin separates us from the love of God, but the cultivation of virtue can restore right relationship with Him. This Lent, begin the journey from sin to sanctity with Fr. Robert Barron's spiritual study on "Seven Deadly Sins and Seven Lively Virtues".
Pride, envy, anger, sloth, gluttony, avarice and lust are all patterns of dysfunction within us that lead to unhappiness. Fr. Barron explains the nature of these sins and offers a corresponding virtue for each one, giving practical advice on how to instill this virtue in your own life.
*April 9th meeting location TBD.
