The wise Christian always keeps silent

1924

It is difficult to save the soul of the one who does not keep silence, who at any time is engaged in idle conversations about the earthly and vain, especially condemning others. Not for nothing it is said: the one who is very talkative, he is very sinful. What a profound truth there is in those words! Try to analyse your usual conversation, to break it down, so you will see that almost every word is a sin: a complaint, shame, grumble, dispute, even struggle, condemnation and defamation… The wise Christian always keeps silent, because he knows: the tongue although is soft and small, painfully hurts the heart, and most importantly – it kills the soul.
