Fifth paragraph
from the handout
"Sloth, the bosom companion of covetousness, is seen as the failure of the will to work purposefully and constructively for God. It is a mean sin which could not care less about others when there is no obvious and immediate personal gratification. The only antidote is perserverance, the willingness and effort to remain aware of others and open-hearted towards them, even and especially when there is nothing to be gained for the self. Perseverance is the way the selfish laziness of the will is overcome throught persistent acts of charity towards others and acts of devotion towards God. "
