Examples

  • One Australian commentator has noted the current trend with families, faith and by extension the wider community must necessarily be a transient one for it cannot sustain a creative, productive, visionary civilisation for long and will burn itself out - the term ascedia (please excuse my spelling) which describes a lack of spirituality, reverence, contemplation and awe towards a higher order of life than mere humanity - as found in Christianity, for instance, leads to a death of the heart and innevitable death of society.

    Living the Dream

  • Ascedia, Christian ascedia to be exact (along with generous scoopfuls of mesandry) seem to be the order of the day ... and have been for the past 50 years.

  • I tend to obsess for lack of a better word on the sins of ascedia and sloth.
