Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, bearing with one another and forgiving one another, if one has a grievance against another; as the Lord has forgiven you, so must you also do. And over all these put on love, that is, the bond of perfection. ~Colossians 3:12-14
Let us ask the Lord for the grace not to speak badly of others, not to criticize, not to gossip, but rather to love everyone. ~Pope Francis, 10/7/14 Tweet
O Lord, keep me from judging and criticizing my neighbor; give me kind, loving thoughts about everyone...teach me to cover the defects and faults of others with the mantle of charity. ~Fr. Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalen, O.C.D.
