Canto VI: The Gluttons
Based on Canto VI in "Inferno," reflect on the sinners and their punishments that have landed the sinners here. As the Gluttons, how has their desire for food and drink landed them in the Circle 3. Consider our Christianity as we embark on our journey through Lent as well take a look inside ourselves to prepare for the risen Christ. How have you been gluttonous with either food or drink? How often are we chasing after that which we think will fill us, allowing ourselves to be distracted from the One who really satisfies? At least 5 sentences.

The sinners in circle three are gluttons, These people abused food and drink and lost track of what is truly important and who truly satisfies us. During lent we try to fast and give stuff up so that we can reconnect ourselves to God. We as humans find ourselves chasing after material things to give us joy and we lose sight of God and how he truly makes us happy. Sometimes I can eat more than I should just because I am fortunate enough to have food, but I have to keep in mind that there are people that are not as fortunate as me.

Food is very tasty and it can often distract us. In America in today's day and age fast food and other options for food are very common. My brother and I often go to McDonald's after school instead of going home and eating dinner with our family. I suppose this is not a good habit and it is very expensive but it is till tasty. Sometimes my family gets rattled because we go to fast food places too much.

In Canto VI, Dante ad Virgil travel to circle three where they meet the gluttons. The gluttons committed a sin of indulging themselves with food. Their punishment is that they live in garbage because the garbage pours over them just as they slavered over food. Sometimes when we eat a lot of food to satisfy us, we do not realize that God is the one that satisfies. Similarly, in Lent, we fast in order to try and decrease the amount of food we eat.

Sinners who go to Circle 3 are commonly known as gluttons. Gluttons are people who indulge in food and drink selfishly. The sinners should pay more attention to the fact that God satisfies us more than anything else. This is similar to what we do during the season of Lent. We fast and give up unnecessary things that distract us from the gifts given to us by God.

The gluttons were the sinners placed in the third circle of hell that were selfish with food. They lost track of what was truly important and focused on feeding themselves. They receive the punishment of living in garbage since their entire lives were centered around food. Lent is a time when Christians give up things in their lives and fast from eating meat on certain days. God is the one that can truly fill us and no amount of food will fill us without God in our lives.

The sinners that are in circle three are the gluttons. They overindulged on food and did not think of what truly satisfies us. I have been greedy before and have eaten more than I should. I am fortunate to have this option. Some people don't have this and that is why it is important to know the one who truly satisfies us.

in circle three, Dante and Virgil come across the gluttons. the gluttons are the sinners who indulge in food and drink and are wasteful. their punishment is to live in a place of waste because they were wasteful on earth. in my daily life, i have also been wasteful by not eating all of my dinner

In Canto VI the sinners pictures are the gluttons. They indulges themselves with food and drink, rather than pursuing what they really longed for, God. This is a common issue in today's culture as many put what they eat and drink ahead of their real purpose in life and even at the expense of others. Even I have sinned as a Glutton may have before. As we enter lent we should focus on putting Jesus first, as the Gluttons in this circle of Hell did not

The sinners that we meet in this canto are referred to as gluttons. They often eat or drink to much. They sinned by not doing what God wanted them to do. They did not do what God wanted, but instead ate their lives away. As we enter lent, we should be mindful of eating too much. We should fast because we are in the season of lent.

In circle three, we meet the gluttons. During their lives on earth, they made no effort to use the gifts God gave them then to eat and drink producing nothing but garbage. Lent allows us to reflect on our daily lives, and it makes us more aware of the amount of food we intake. As Christians, we must fast from meat on Fridays, which teaches us how to refrain from gluttony. This also allows us to reflect on God, who will truly fill us.

In Circle 3, Dante encounters a new type of sinner known as gluttons. Gluttons are people who have a habit of eating or drinking in great excess or being very wasteful when consuming food or drink. Many people today turn to food or drink to get the satisfaction that God should be giving them. I sometimes am wasteful in the sense that I occasionally take more than I know I will be able to eat or drink. This causes me to throw away the extra food that someone else could have eaten. During Lent, we are taught to fast and therefore turn away from gluttonous actions.

In Canto VI, Dante and Virgil encounter the Gluttons who reside in circle 3. Their desire has landed them in this circle because during their life on earth, they would indulge themselves in food and drink. During Lent, we are called to give up something or be a better person as a sacrifice because Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice for us. He did this for us because he loved us and he did this so that we would be free of sin. I personally have not always followed through with my sacrifice during previous Lenten years. I try incredibly hard but my love for certain foods can take over. Sometimes we become distracted by other things and lose sight of what is really important in life which is God.

The punishment for the gluttons is that they are constantly showered in filth and trash. They're punished in this way because they constantly showered themselves in food while living on earth. During Lent, Christians learn that they unnecessarily surround themselves with things, like food, to feel good. They give up those things in the Lent season to sacrifice like Jesus did and, hopefully, realize that they'll only find true happiness by surrounding themselves with God and his love. People are constantly chasing happiness. For this reason, people are never truly happy, but they have yet to realize that the real happiness is lying right in front of them.

The Sinners in Circle 3 are known as gluttons. These are the souls who had a bad habit of eating and drinking too much, and wasting it in the process. During Lent we are supposed to fast which in process with reconnect us with God. I am sometimes wasteful with food because I tend to grab more food than I am able to intake. During Lent it our job is to fast because then we can appreciate the things we have and let God's grace fulfill us.

The sinners of Circle 3 are known as the gluttons. A glutton is one who eats and drinks excessively. Just like they were produces or nothing but garbage in their life, now in hell the gluttons lie through all eternity, themselves like garbage, buried in slush, while Cerberus slavers over them as they in life slavered over their food. I sometimes take more food than I need at dinner and end up not eating it and throwing it away. During Lent, we are encouraged to fast and abstain. While doing this, many discover the satisfaction God gives, a thing much greater than the satisfaction of food.

In Circle 3, Dante encounters the gluttons. These are the people who eat and drink excessively. Their punishment in hell is that they are treated like garbage while Cerberus drools over them just like they drooled over food in their lives. During Lent, we are called to fast and abstain from meat. We do this because we want to take away someone's attachment to the world to focus on Jesus' death and resurrection.

In Canto VI, we discover the gluttons. These sinners have obviously been self-centered and eaten excessively. I think we have all been gluttons at some time in our lives. In my life, I will walk around the house all day and pick at food which all adds up. As Christians, we believe that Christ should be our eternal food as a path to eternal life. If we eat a sustainable amount, that is only half. But if we also eat Jesus' body, that is the other half, which we need in our lives.

The poets enter the third circle of Hell and encounter the sinners known as the Gluttons. These sinners focused on food and drink their entire lives, and their gluttonous acts interfered with having a relationship with God. I often take more food than I know I need. During Lent we abstain and fast, allowing us to focus more on God and less on material goods that clog our conscious. Lent allows us to detach ourselves from the constant yearning for more, and look more towards God who is the only source that can truly satisfy us.

The third circle of hell houses the gluttonous, or souls that overindulged in life. During Lent, people are expected to show self control and restraint, in terms of things we find pleasurable. This helps Christians to keep in mind what is truly important and what showing self-restraint will earn them. Sometimes I take advantage of the bounty of food that most Americans today are exposed to, as I'm sure many people have. Lent is about recognizing what will truly satisfy people, and what will not (aka material items).

The 3rd circle of hell includes those who's life surrounded food and drink over more important matters. Christians view Lent as a time of fasting or giving up something that is utilized constantly their life. Gluttony refers to the people that not only skip over Lent, but fill their lives with exceedingly amounts of food/drink. Recently, I've found myself eating at times where I could do something else productive. I think this can be solved by realizing the idolization of what we eat is not really filling us, that can only be achieved through emotions/ feelings such as love or hope.

As we enter lent, we begin a time of fasting and spiritual healing. This fasting is opposite of gluttony. As the sinners in the 3rd circle of hell ate, consumed, and wasted, we as Christians are called to eat well during ordinary time , but not to excess. In lent we limit what we eat and focus more on receiving the food of the flesh from our lord Jesus Christ.

In Canto VI, we meet the gluttonous. These people have abused food and drink. This constant eating leaves barely any food for the people who are starving and really need it. Instead they eat more than they need. An example is America as a whole. There is a large number of people in the US that are very obese. Some of these people have uncontrollable illnesses but most are just gluttons.

The sinners found in circle three are known as the gluttons. These are people who selfishly over indulge in food and in drink. Often times we take our food and drink for granted, as it is not as easily accessible to some. Gluttons are people who are never satisfied. In our lives, it is easy to become consumed with things that we want, never being satisfied and always wanting more. In this case, we lose sight of the thing that fully satisfies us when material things can not, and that is God.

In Circle Three, we meet the Gluttons. These are the souls that overindulged themselves in food or drink during their time on Earth. However, their sin was not encompassing themselves with these things, but rather worshiping them. These souls were sent to hell for praising food and drink above the Lord. As we approach Lent, we ready ourselves to set aside unnecessary luxuries to allow us to be more focused on the nearing Resurrection of Christ.
