1. VICES are evil habits: that is, they give us a disposition to perform evil actions.

We sometimes develop vices which incline us to perform evil actions. These normally involve excess - or deficiency in pursuing what is good. #vices
2. Often starting with small, venial sins, vices can quickly become ingrained and difficult to uproot.

#Christianity #ChristiansOnTwitter #CatholicTwitter #Christiantwitter
3. The seven vices are called ‘deadly’ because of their poisonous effects on the human soul, the difficulty in eradicating them, and the ease with which they lead to mortal sin.

The vices may promise an easier, ‘fun-filled’ life, but they ensnare and enslave us.
