I received a link from one of you readers to a page at Glen Beck’s place. He posted a couple lists.
Here are the “7 National Crimes” by William John Henry Boetcker published, as far as I can tell, in the early 20th c.:
- I don’t think.
- I don’t know.
- I don’t care.
- I am too busy.
- I leave well enough alone.
- I have no time to read and find out.
- I am not interested.
These might be easily translated into “7 Ecclesiastical Crimes”.
I don’t mean that just for clerics, by the way. I mean that also for lay people.
Connect them to two-fold command of Christ, or the precepts of the Church, or the spiritual and corporal works of mercy.
There is another list over there that is interesting as well: “The 10 Cannots”
