Watch what you say
Sometimes this hurts not only our own relationship with God: sometimes our poor witness causes others to go astray.
Our Lord’s warning in today’s Gospel (Mark 9:38-43, 45, 47-48) should give us pause.
one of these little ones who believe in me
it would be better for him
if a great millstone were hung round his neck
and he were thrown into the sea.
We should seek always the grace to be conscientious in all our words and all our actions, so as to deepen our relationship with Christ and enhance our witness to others.
