“Sin” is a word that seems to have fallen on hard times. Yet it is an obvious reality in contemporary life. This session will look at the development of the Catholic understanding of sin as it has moved from a focus on keeping rules to a summons to treat others justly. We will also examine what we mean by “social sin” and “structures of sin.” The end result will be a more “adult” understanding of “sin.”
