whereas the term acedia may be strange, the vice, often translated as sloth, is all too universal. Sloth isn't mere laziness, in spite of the fact that, yet a disgust with fact, a loathing of our name to be pals with God, and a spiteful hatred of position and lifestyles itself. As defined via Josef Pieper, the slothful individual doesn't "want to be as God wishes him to be, and that eventually potential he doesn't desire to be what he particularly, essentially is." Sloth is a hellish melancholy. Our personal tradition is deeply contaminated, opting for a harmful freedom instead of the nice paintings for which God created us. Acedia and its Discontents resists depression, calling us to reconfigure our imaginations and practices in deep love of the existence and paintings given by means of God.
