What’s Your Favorite Sin?

A Catholic survey found that the most common sin for women was pride, while for men, the urge for food was only surpassed by the urge for sex.  The report was based on a study of confessions carried out by Fr Roberto Busa, a 95-year-old Jesuit scholar.The Pope’s personal theologian backed up the report in the Vatican newspaper.  “Men and women sin in different ways,” Msgr Wojciech Giertych, theologian to the papal household, wrote in L’Osservatore Romano. “When you look at vices from the point of view of the difficulties they create you find that men experiment in a different way from women.”  Msgr Giertych said the most difficult sin for men to face was lust, followed by gluttony, sloth, anger, pride, envy and greed. For women, the most dangerous sins were pride, envy, anger, lust, and sloth, he added.
