When is the sin of sloth committed?


Hi excuse me,I wanted to know when is the son of sloth commited?Is it when one rests on a day that isn’t Sunday?Thank you and God ble


No, not at all. It is when one, to the exclusion of other duties, spends excess time in either licit if idle pleasures, or, less important responsibilities. For example, when one, knowing he has to pray, pick up his kids, read a project-connected book, or go to work, chooses to rest, be idle, or do something unproductive- or unimportant- instead. Such as choosing work or pleasure over raising one’s children or marital duties. Here’s a link:
