Acedia, the Forgotten Capital Sin–RJ Snell

[ad_1]

Oct 3, 2018

As soon as included among the many capital sins, acedia has been recognized
with each sloth and unhappiness. St. Thomas Aquinas, for instance,
outlined it each as «disgust with exercise» and “unhappiness about
non secular good.” At this time’s visitor, RJ Snell, argues that acedia is the
chief non secular illness of our age, underlying the malaise, nihilism
and despair so prevalent within the trendy West.
