Powers of the Soul

February 27

February 27

The love of talk distracts all the powers of our soul from God and fills them with earthly objects and impressions like a vessel of water which cannot be clear and settled while you are continually stirring the earthly particles from the bottom.

                                                                      -- St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

 For Reflection:

The powers of the soul are will, reason, and emotion. How can the “love of talk” draw these away from God? To what extent have I seen this to be true in myself? What practical strategies can I use to purge myself of this tendency?
