Practice Makes Catholic - Did you know?

These are each individual actions which lead us to sins which separate us from God. The first we will investigate is gluttony. Gluttony does not specifically refer to food. It is any action that causes us to have abusive overconsumption or over indulgence in a particular instance. This refers to, but not limited to, food, activities, or wealth. When over indulgence in anything causes us to ignore others or withhold ourselves, our time, energy, or goods from others that becomes the cause of sin. This new year it might be wise of each of us to exam those things that we gluttonously overuse that put a barrier between us and God. Our faithfulness on our journey to God is why we do what we do.
