Sacred Lord, Saint Ambrose was called “the honey-tongued doctor” because of his gift of preaching and his reputation as an expert on Church doctrine. Words were very important to him and he said, “Let no word escape your lips in vain or be uttered without depth of meaning.” I ask him to pray for me to gain a holy appreciation of the right use of language. O My Jesus, close my mouth from speaking profane, slanderous or condemning words. Teach me to remain silent when I am tempted to use my mouth unlovingly. May my words be like rivers, clean and pure, moving others closer to You. Saint Ambrose, pray for me. Amen.
