Feast of Sts. Philip and James, Apostles
How great a forest is set ablaze by a small fire! And the tongue is a fire. The tongue is an unrighteous world among our members, staining the whole body, setting on fire the cycle of nature.
Have I started “fires” of gossip among my friends and family by failing to control my tongue? I will resolve to consider my words more deeply, for my sake and others’.
