A Catholic survey found that the most common sin for women was pride, while for men, the urge for food was only surpassed by the urge for sex.
The report was based on a study of confessions carried out by Fr Roberto Busa, a 95-year-old Jesuit scholar.
THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS
- Lust 2. Gluttony 3. Sloth
- Anger 5. Pride 6. Envy 7. Greed
- Pride 2. Envy 3. Anger 4. Lust
- Gluttony 6. Avarice 7. Sloth
“We are losing the notion of sin,” he said. “If people do not confess regularly, they risk slowing their spiritual rhythm.”
It is interesting to see how sins of men and women stack up differently. At any rate, without regular confession, one can easily slow spiritual rhythm. With this I whole heartedly agree.
I found this in CAF Ask the Apologist:
The seven virtues that are specific opposites to the Seven Deadly Sins:
Humility against pride
Kindness against envy
Abstinence against gluttony
Chastity against lust
Patience against anger
Liberality against greed
Diligence against sloth.
