The 7 Capital Sins, also known as "The 7 Deadly Sins," are those sins that give rise to other sins. They were first enumerated by Pope St. Gregory the Great in "Moralia in Job."
Pray for those virtues!
So are all those who claimed that they were baptized Catholic, but no longer practice the Catholic faith guilty of sloth?

Every Catholic Should be Familiar With The 7 Capital Sins?
How familiar? I’m not Catholic, but I’m pretty good at most of ‘em.
Good at committing the seven capital sins? I think you didn’t mean that. At least I hope you didn’t.
Good at knowing them — that’s what you meant, correct?

We’re all guilty of something. :)
I know I am constantly at battle with Satan with the pride. It seems to be a forerunner of all the sins.
As long as you stay on God's side, you will win. There is no doubt.

Amazing how that works, isn't it. Most people seem to think that pride isn't such a big deal, but it really DOES lead to the other sins.
LOL at the photo. My kitchen looks like that sometimes. I trash it when I cook. Still laughing.
Yes I think sloth addresses all kinds of laziness. I was amazed to see the laziness with faith addressed, but it sure makes sense. Brings to mind C and E Catholics who don’t even bother going to Reconciliation during the Easter season.
