1910 New Catholic Dictionary
(Latin: avere, to crave)
(covetousness) The inordinate love of temporal goods usually estimable in terms of money. This love of money becomes inordinate when it makes a man hard-hearted, causes him to be niggardly in spending it, too eager and absorbed in acquiring and preserving it, or prepared to do what is wrong in order to obtain it.
