Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Thomas Aquinas On Original Sin, Part 7.

From Summa Theologica:

Treatise on Habits in Particular, Question 82, Article 3: Whether original sin is concupiscence?
"Concupiscence" is defined as "inordinate desire." Aquinas concludes that formally "original sin" is defined as a privation of original justice (explained in previous articles), but materially "original sin" consists of inordinate desire.
