Softening Sharpness

Keep alive in your memory that most holy precept of love which Jesus gave to his disciples before going to his death, “Love one another as I love you” (Jn 15:12).
Let there be no dissension among you. If, occasionally, you let slip a sharp word, soften it as quickly as possible. “Do not keep on speaking that way and do not let anger take hold of your heart.”
