Seven Deadly Sins Seven Lively Virtues Study Guide
A DEEP LOOK AT SIN AND VIRTUE
Bishop Robert Barron for this engaging presentation concerning the seven deadly sins, those great spiritual blocks that inhibit our flourishing in relationship with God and one another.
Based on Dante's writings, the seven deadly sins correspond to the seven levels of Dante's Mt. Purgatory. Pride, envy, anger, sloth, gluttony, avarice, and lust are all presented as patterns of dysfunction within us that lead to unhappiness.
However, Bishop Barron shows us how to counteract these seven sinful patterns through a conscious process of opposition, which are the "seven lively virtues." The seven lively virtues offer antidotes to each sin and help set us on the right path to healing and happiness.
A companion guide for either the Seven Deadly Sins/Seven Lively Virtues study program, which will deepen your interaction with Bishop Barron's popular presentation. The Seven Deadly Sins/Seven Lively Virtues study guide can be used individually or as part of a group faith formation program.
The study guide is divided into eight lessons: an introduction and one section for each sin and its countervailing virtue. Each section provides four or five "Questions for Understanding" with references from Scripture and from the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Each section also provides four or five "Questions for Reflection," which will help you reflect on how Bishop Barron's message is relevant to your own life and experiences.
