The Seven Deadly Sins reflect the Fall.  The three Alienating Vices--Pride, Envy Anger--alienate us from God, our neighbor and ourselves.  The Hinge Vice, Sloth, leaves us in exile, seeking to satisfy ourselves from external things--Greed, Gluttony, and Lust--the Exiling Vices.  The Seven Petitions of the Lord's Prayer heal the Seven Vices.
