Little Sins Mean a Lot: Kicking Our Bad Habits Before They Kick Us

Most of us at one time have said, or thought, something like:

  • “So I procrastinate, it’s not like it’s hurting anyone!”
  • “Enough about you, back to me.”
  • “I deserve this, so I’m treating myself!”
  • “If I can’t have it, she shouldn’t either.”
  • “I’ll get around to it… or not.”
  • “It’s not really gossip if it’s all true, right?”
  • (And the granddaddy of them all) “But that doesn’t make me a bad person!”

Are these really sins, you ask? After all, they’re not murder, theft, or violence. Don’t they just mean we’re human?

Writer, speaker, and blogger Elizabeth Scalia takes a look at thirteen of these “little sins” that, if left unexamined and unconfessed, can have a serious impact on our spiritual lives and relationship with Christ. Through her honest (and sometimes funny) examination of these same sins in her own life, as well as Church teaching on each one, she helps us ask ourselves the tough questions, and the tools to kick these bad habits before they kick us.

Manual for Conquering Deadly Sin

Our society has lost its sense of the devastating effects of sin. It is of vital importance that each individual soul recover this lost sense of sin and to begin the struggle to conquer the deadly sins that threaten his or her salvation. The Manual for Conquering Deadly Sin will help you do just that in your own life.

In any struggle, you must know your enemy. Hence, Part I:

• Defines sin and distinguishes between mortal and venial sins.
• Examines each of the classical seven deadly sins: lust, gluttony, avarice, sloth, anger, envy, and pride.
  Reveals their causes, manifestations, and more.
• Provides specific advice and remedies for conquering each deadly sin in your own life.
• Identifies those corresponding virtues which must be cultivated in order to rid yourself of deadly sin.

Part II, features a compilation of passages from Church teaching and Scripture, along with quotes from the saints that complement and give life to the reflections in Part I.

As Fr. Kolinski makes clear— the truest medicine is found in the sacramental life of the Church. But,
in addition to the graces found in frequent confession and reception of the Eucharist, the Manual for Conquering Deadly Sin will be an indispensable aid in your fight; an invaluable resource for every person serious about salvation.
