During the month of September, we ‘press on’ With Holy Words. This continues to remind us of the Cardinal Virtue of justice. A related virtue is prayerfulness. This is being still, listening, and being willing to talk to God as a friend. Holy words are used in our prayer as we talk to God. Holy words should also be used in our conversations we have as we talk to others and listen to them with respect. This is living our second commandment in a positive way as well as the third commandment. As we get to know God better in our reading of Sacred Scripture, receiving the sacraments, and at prayer, we continue to Press On With Holy Words!
The Words of the Wise: Incline your ear, and hear my words, and let your mind attend to my teaching; for it will be well if you hold them within you, if they all are ready on your lips. That your trust may be in the Lord, I make them known to you today - yes, to you. Proverbs 22:17-19
