In an effort to appeal to the modern Catholic,
the Vatican has announced a list of seven new mortal sins.
Father James Martin on the importance of updating
the 1,500-year-old sin list: "I think it's to remind people
that sins are not just individual," .... "There's also
social sins .. .sins that affect the community at large and sins
that an institution can engage in."
