    Catechism of the Catholic Church

    1857 For a sin to be mortal, three conditions must together be met: "Mortal sin is sin whose object is grave matter and which is also committed with full knowledge and deliberate consent."131
    1866 Vices can be classified according to the virtues they oppose, or also be linked to the capital sins which Christian experience has distinguished,
    following StJohn Cassian and StGregory the Great. They are called "capital" because they engender other sins, other vices.138 
    They are prideavariceenvy, wrath, lust, gluttony, and sloth or acedia.
