The luxuria Becomes restless,
with hurricane winds,
From its own lack of self-control!

Laute eats too expensively, Studiose eats too daintily, Nimis eats too much, Praepropere eats too soon, and Ardenter eats too eagerly.
They all can and will indirectly kill other people through starvation!

greed with its inordinate desire to acquire/possess more than it needs,
especially with respect to material wealth!

tristitia will subverts your livelihood, taking no care for your day-to-day provisions, but also slows down our mind, halting your attention to matters of great importance.
it hinders the man in his righteous undertakings and thus becomes a terrible source of human's undoing!

When ira reaches the point for a deliberate desire to kill or seriously wound a neighbor, it is gravely against charity
This desire that someone else may suffer misfortune or evil, is a deadly one!

Invidia is in accordance with the most widely accepted views, only pride weighs down the soul more than envy among the capital sins.
Just like avaritia and luxuria, is characterized by an insatiable desire.
Just like superbia, envy has been associated directly with The rising stare!

superbia is the worst viper that is in the heart, the greatest disturber of the soul's peace and sweet communion with Christ!
it was the first sin that ever was and lies lowest in the foundation of Satan's whole building, is the most difficultly rooted out, is the most hidden, secret, and deceitful of all lusts.
It often creeps in, insensibly, into the midst of religion and sometimes under the disguise of humility, be on your guard!
