*Quote, Frederick Lewis Donaldson, as recorded by Gandhi
“Seven Social Sins (published in Young India, published the list in his weekly newspaper, Young India, on October 22, 1925, after received by a friend believed to be Frederick Lewis Donaldson, canon of Westminster Abby; called variously, Seven Roots of Evil, Seven Evils of the World, Seven Deadly Sins of Society):

1. wealth without work
2. pleasure without conscience
3. knowledge without character
4. commerce without morality
5. science without humanity
6. worship without sacrifice
7. politics without principle
*In case you’ve seen a Gandhi-inspired list with eight social sins, rather than seven, Gandhi’s grandson, Arun Gandhi, more or less inherited the list and added an eighth item: Rights without responsibilities.”

Mitch, C. (2010). Introduction to the Gospels. In The Ignatius Catholic Study Bible: The New Testament (p. 118). San Francisco: Ignatius Press.
Morally (St. Ambrose, In Lucam): the Lucan Beatitudes reflect the four cardinal virtues. The poor exhibit temperance as they shun the vain and excessive pleasures of the world. The hungry display justice as they share the plight of the lowly and give to those who have little. Those who weep exercise prudence as they lament the vanity of temporal things and look to what is eternal. Those hated by men exercise fortitude because they persevere when persecuted for their faith (CCC 1805–9).”
