Pride comes before a fall..

Being proud, (and therefore sinful), I don’t really like to copy and paste articles, but this is very relevant to my next tranche of writing. 

That’ll be Two Hail Marys and an Our Father….

A confessional box in St Peters, Rome, 23 August, 2007   

Italian confession boxes have been used less in recent years

Women are prouder than men, but men are more lustful, according to a Vatican report which states that the two sexes sin differently.

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.





  1. lol glad i am just a caveman and wasn’t included in this study!

    really, the only difference then is this: women are proud because they know men really want sex and they can proudly with hold it from them! hehehe

  2. you really are a caveman

  3. Yes, he certainly is a caveman!

    Really, why would they do such a survey?

    • Ug. Ug.

      And I thought the worst sin was wearing brown shoes with a blue suit….
