While I didn't remember vainglory as one of the original seven capital sins and at the same time not really understanding the meaning of vainglory, I thought this would be an opportunity to reflect on their contemporary meaning for today's culture.
What a surprise and what a gift. Yes, I even attended both nights, boughtGlittering Vices, and thanks to the desert fathers, St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas and Rebecca Konyndky DeYoung, I can see how relevant a study of the seven deadly sins and their remedies is so timely for us as a socieity, parish or congregation, and culture.
This is a an excellent book for small group study and reading groups.
