When we open our mouths and speak, we open our inner selves and reveal publicly:
Our “heart’s abundance
Our faults and sins
The bent of our minds
Be “slow to speak”
Don’t talk too much
“Let no evil come out of your mouths, but only such as in good for edifying, as fits the occasion that it may impart grace to those who hear.
This coming Lent, let Jesus be Lord of your mouth, the Holy Spirit purify your tongue, and the Father be glorified by your every word.
