Which of you loves life and desires to see good days?  Keep your tongue from evil.  – Ps 34:13-14

Reflection. If you want to live in peace, make sure that you do not make enemies by poisoning the atmosphere with vicious gossip.  If you want to live joyfully, control your speech and avoid negativity.

Prayer. Help me, Lord, to control my tongue so that I may say only what is good and charitable.  Make me an instrument of Your peace.
