St Luke the Surgeon: The Tongue

“If our tongue is as sharp as a sword, then we can use it to murder people. And we do so often enough, though we don’t think of ourselves as murderers. We wound the hearts of our neighbours with slander and lies, we insult their human dignity and aggravate their hearts with calumny. Is that not spiritual murder?” – Saint Luke the Surgeon
