Never let evil talk pass your lips; say only the good things others need to hear, things that will really help them. Do nothing that will sadden the Holy Spirit with whom you were sealed against the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, all passion and anger, harsh words, slander, and malice of every kind. In place of these, be kind to one another, compassionate, and mutually forgiving, just as God has forgiven you in Christ.
Good advice from St. Paul, the day after the Feast of his Conversion, on the Feast Days of Saints Timothy and Titus to whom he could have given this or similar advice face to face.
Saints Paul, Timothy and Titus, pray that we might all follow this good advice while still near the beginning of a Holy New Jubilee Year of Mercy! We pray in Jesus’ name.
