Restless Poison

The affliction, sloth, is dis-spiriting. Thinking Faith continues its series using a film to examine the seven deadly sins. Sloth is the focus of this Fourth Week of Lent. 

Evagrius of Ponticus called it the “noonday devil”; Kathleen Norris described its effect as ‘refusing the gift of each day’; and Lester Burnham (in “American Beauty”) is ‘living just barely.’ Even  Ignatius of Loyola figures in this post by Jesuit Rob Marsh.
