Gluttony


Gluttony, derived from the Latin gluttire meaning to gulp down or swallow, means over-indulgence and over-consumption of food, drink, or wealth items to the point of extravagance or waste. In some Christian denominations, it is considered one of the seven deadly sins—a misplaced desire of food or its withholding from the needy.


In his Summa Theologica , St. Thomas Aquinas reiterated the list of five ways to commit gluttony:
  • Laute - eating food that is too luxurious, exotic, or costly
  • Nimis - eating food that is excessive in quantity
  • Studiose - eating food that is too daintily or elaborately prepared
  • Praepropere - eating too soon, or at an inappropriate time
  • Ardenter - eating too eagerly.

    1. Thank you, you are kind, but I really didn't like Sunday school and never heard of anybody that did. It must be the teacher in me that got a free reign and just wants to tell everything he knows LOL.

      Thank you for your compliment, Mona Lisa,

      Han
