Solemnity of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist
Mary, Refuge of Holy Love

Our Lady comes as Mary, Refuge of Holy Love. She says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“I have come to remind everyone of the importance of basing their opinions on the reality of facts. What people say about others forms their reputation. If you are not propagating the Truth, you are rash judging and leading others to rash judge. This example compounds your sin.”

“If you find yourself in a position of leadership – spiritual or secular – the influence of your opinions or statements about others bears great consequences. This is why it is imperative in My Son's Eyes that all you express about others be fair and open-minded with the absence of self-interest.”

“When you purposely damage another's reputation, you damage your own image in the Eyes of God. Therefore, be charitable in thought, word and deed concerning all others. If there is something good to be said, express that good rather than finding fault. Constructive criticism needs to be expressed only in the environment where it will be helpful.”

Read James 3:7-10+

Synopsis: Abuses (sin) of the tongue are a restless and deadly evil that cannot be tamed and considered as doing good.

For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and sea creature, can be tamed and has been tamed by humankind, but no human being can tame the tongue – a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With it we bless the Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who are made in the likeness of God. From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brethren, this ought not to be so.
