Feast of St. Benedict
St. Benedict

St. Benedict says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“I have come to inform you of a certain trap people allow Satan to lead them into. Sometimes, when people feel secure in their own present moment conversion, they become overly critical of others, either in thought or speech. This is a sanctimonious attitude, which does not serve to correct error but, rather, to close hearts to correction.”

“If such extreme criticism takes place only in thought, it is a form of unforgiveness, which is, as you know, an obstacle between the human heart and the Heart of God.”

“When you notice error in another, say a quick ejaculatory prayer such as: ‘Holy Spirit, inspire me.' Then you will know how much to say and when to say it.”
