Fight Sin. Foster Virtue.
Every one of us must fight against sin, or risk losing our souls. If we hope to overcome the deadly sins, we need to know what they are and how they work in our lives. Click the video for an exclusive Sneak Peek.
Equip yourself to conquer the sins that sneakily threaten your relationship with God.
Rooting Out Deadly Sin
Sin is sneaky. It thrives when we ignore it—or when we think we don’t struggle with it. And while we might know about the “Seven Deadly Sins,” that only scratches the surface of understanding deadly sin in our lives. Every person must resist every sin, even if we think we don’t struggle with sloth, or gluttony, or pride.
In this series, we’ll learn how to pursue a life of virtue by learning:
- Why there are more than seven Deadly Sins (Session 1)
- That sloth isn’t actually about being lazy (Sessions 10 and 11)
- Why lust is the “least” of the deadly sins, but still has drastic consequences (Session 14)
- The many hidden ways that deadly sin can pop up in our lives (Session 16)
- How the virtue of justice and a well-formed conscience can help us grow in every virtue (Session 26)
- …and much more
Take the journey with us and with Fr. John Eckert. The deadly sins threaten each one of us, but through Christ and with the guidance of His Church, we can walk the path of righteousness and become more like His saints.
Flexible Series Format
Overcoming Deadly Sin will evaluate each of the deadly sins in turn. If you want to learn how to better combat that particular sin in your life, you can move on to the opposing virtue and begin breaking your sinful habits. Or you can move on to the next deadly sin and come back to the virtues later. You can get what you need right away, so that you can fight the good fight without waiting around.
We’ll also include in-depth examinations to help you diagnose the sins in your life. You might be surprised at the ways the deadly sins can lurk in your life.

Father John Eckert
Fr. John Eckert is a priest of the Diocese of Charlotte, North Carolina. A cradle Catholic, he grew up surrounded by family, friends, and clergy who exemplified what it meant to truly live the Faith. This helped him discern his calling to the priesthood from a young age. He graduated from Saint Louis University in 2004 with a degree in Political Science and Communication. He entered seminary soon afterwards, studying at the Pontifical College Josephinum in Ohio. In 2010, he was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Charlotte. He has served as Parochial Vicar of Our Lady of Grace in Greensboro and as pastor of St. John the Baptist in Tryon. He now serves as pastor of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Salisbury, where he has been in residence since 2014.
Peter Gohn, a proud Irish Catholic and Massachusetts native, studied History and Theology at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. He then spent several years teaching at Christ the King Catholic High School near Charlotte, North Carolina, while also working as a freelance editor. He joined The Catholic Company in 2017 and became a key member of the Good Catholic project soon after it was launched. When not writing, Peter is likely to be found re-reading his many books, playing his piano, or watching Boston sports. His deep love of ancient and medieval history lends itself to unpacking the many rich traditions of our Catholic faith. He and his wife currently reside in Charlotte, North Carolina.
