Dear God, Saint Peter Chrysologus was called “the golden-worded one” because of his outstanding gift of preaching. He could be powerful yet brief, direct while being compassionate, and persuasive without being judgmental. I ask him to pray for my own use of words. Holy Spirit, give me Your words to speak whenever I am in any conversation, even casual ones—in the grocery store or church, serving on jury duty or parish committees, dealing with loved ones or addressing strangers, meeting people of status or facing those who make a poor impression. Let Your words become my words. Saint Peter, pray for me. Amen.
