‘And the Word was God’

‘[Christ’s] words are solemn

but not sombre
for they

raise us up

when we have

fallen

and

support us

as we follow Him.’

From The Little Way of Lent
by Fr. Gary Caster

 

Language is powerful. It can build up and tear down civilizations. It is one of the things that makes us human, and it is one of the things that defines us as ‘made in His image’. First comes the breath, then comes the life. First the word, then the act. Language itself is a miracle. We must choose our words with care.

Lord, may my words be always pleasing to you. May I never use them to dictate, or to deceive, or to puff myself up with pride. May my voice always reflect your voice. 

Amen
