The Seven Capital Sins is an essential book for self-knowledge and spiritual progress. Everyone, unfortunately, will see himself or herself described in the pages of this booklet, as all our sins are traceable to these seven roots of Pride, Covetousness (Avarice), Lust, Anger, Gluttony, Envy, and Sloth. These deadly sins are the seven taproots of evil; they exist within all of us as a result of original sin.
The Seven Capital Sins explains the true nature, degrees, acts, and family relationships of these seven vices, and it gives the remedies and safeguards against them. Readers will find insights into the particular weaknesses of their own souls, enabling them to make serious efforts to follow Our Lord's challenging imperative: "Be you therefore perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect" (Mat 5:48).
TAN has priced this booklet as low as possible for quantity distribution in order to reach as many people as possible. The issue of the salvation of souls and peace in the world is what matters most; this booklet is perhaps one of the most important to that end.
