Vice = a self-destructive addiction

Vice: the lack of control on any weakness to the point where it becomes our second nature. A sick one.

According to Father Arsenie Boca, the beloved monk from Transylvania, „our enemy (the devil) is allowed to lure our body and soul with the pleasures deriving from vices: sensuality, greed, luxury, vanity, the temptation of power, of evanescent glory, pride or arrogance, with the obsession of property (”to have”), pushing the human being into a context of a perspective on life completely contrary to the Revelation. All vices generate a competition for the goods of the material world, so that people see each other as fierce enemies, capable of murder and war.
