Description

The Eight
Big Problems of Life

Laurence Freeman, OSB
3 CDs Approx 4 hours


The seven deadly sins in Christian spirituality were first formulated by the Desert Fathers as the eight principal faults: greed, gluttony, lust, sadness, anger, acedia, pride, vanity.  

Drawing on the wisdom of the Desert teachers, Fr. Laurence sees these inner struggles in non-judgemental terms.  They are, he says patterened states of mind that stem from the human quest for truth, for wholeness, for God; we revert to excesses to fill the void.  These addictive patterns can be overcome through the ascesis and discipline of a deep and faithful spiritual practice.  Meditation, Fr. Laurence says is the essential ascessis of the Christian life.
