Gluttony

A nice little post on Aquinas’ discussion of gluttony. I especially liked the five kinds of gluttony:

 too soon, too expensively, too much, too eagerly, too daintily.

The last one is a bit of a surprise, but makes sense on reflection. You might also like the quote from St. John of the Cross on spiritual gluttony. But I’ll make you follow the link for that one!
