Putting on love...

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.
