Musings and reflections on all things great and small in light of the great Catholic literature (theology, philosophy, spirituality, poetry and fiction, etc.) of all time.
I suppose that this sin needs to have some formation on the part of the sinner. Otherwise, how would the person know what is pleasing to God? Seems like there are a lot of folks that hardly know God at all.
In "On Free Choice of the Will," St. Augustine says that sin occurs when one prefers a lower, created good to a higher good; especially the highest, uncreated good, God. It sounds like this is what St. Ligouri has in mind.
