No Gossiping

One of the disappointing factors on this recent vacation of mine was not to see and listen to this current pope. In yesterday’s message to the crowds, he asked people not to gossip within the church. Sometimes when we get pooped on, we retaliate by spewing not so pleasant stories out of our own mouths. I like this current pope and how he is navigating the needs of the Church today. He uses humour when he chastises his people, suggesting that we do not need to cut out our tongues but we do need to watch them more carefully.

I look forward to hearing what other thought-provoking words he has for us. In the meantime, I am going to try to put his wise counsel into practice this fall.

How about you? What flows from your mouth?



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
