Today is the feast of St. Bonaventure, Doctor of the Church. From the Breviloquium, Part V, Chapter 10:
Therefore it should be noted that Holy Scripture proposes for our consideration a sevenfold series of sevens: the capital sins, the sacraments, the virtues, the gifts, the beatitudes, the petitions, and, as will appear later, the endowments of glory -- three of the soul and four of the body. First, the seven capital sins, from which we must withdraw; secondly, the seven sacraments, by means of which we must grow; last, the seven endowments of glory, to which we must aspire; next to the last, the seven petitions, with which we must seek; and, as intermediary stages, the groups of seven virtues, gifts, and beatitudes through which we must progress. Thus, praising the name of the Lord and praying to him seven times a day, we may obtain the sevenfold grace of these virtues, gifts, and beatitudes, thereby overcoming the sevenfold assault of the capital sins and so attain the sevenfold crown of the endowments of glory, with the aid of the sevenfold sacramental medicine divinely instituted for the restoration of humankind.
