Sixth paragraph
from the handout.
"Gluttony is the sin that flows from a disorderly animal appetite, the obsession with food and drink to the pont of living to eat, rather than eating to live. This failure in proportion is countered by temperance, a sensible and unexciting virtue which is essential to a balanced and worthwhile life because it frees us from excess in order to give us room to work energetically for God.
