Marian .... that fits more into my line of thinking. I appreciate your sharing it. I don't feel quite so "out of it" ...

The ancient Greeks so wisely said: 'All things in moderation'...

Indeed, anything, whether considered a sin or not, can become a sin.sinful passion if we allow it to take over our lives and engage in it in excess...

That is why there are drug addicts, alchoholics, sex addicts, gossip addicts, television addicts, food addicts, etc.

Lord have mercy!

Indeed, Sr. in Christ.

The Fathers explained the mechanisms of sin and passion, also wrote about apatheia.

And always there is a wonderful word that can be lived: metanoia.
