SSF107 – Breaking the Chains that Bind Us: An Introduction to Moral Theology
Moral theology is the study of human acts insofar as they are ordered to our supernatural ultimate end, namely, the face to face vision of God Himself. This class with examine not only the supernatural graces and virtues in which God wants us to grow strong but also the many sins and vices which He wants us to eradicate from our souls. Our principal text for the course will be Kevin Vost’s The Seven Deadly Sins: A Thomistic Guide to Vanquishing Vice and Sin, through which we will acquire a practical knowledge of both what “the chains” are which bind us and how best to break them. This course will conclude with an overview of how God’s commandments direct us to the perfection of charity, the mother of all the virtues.
