A Danger for the Devout – Acedia

with Fr. Robert Adams

In this episode we discuss acedia as described by Evagrius of Pontus. We often hear it described as sloth or laziness, but a more accurate understanding is “sadness”, “despondency”, or “despair”. Laziness is a symptom and not the sin itself. Fr. Rob and Fr. Conrad break down the main symptoms of acedia and also how to combat this sin. Tune in to learn more!
