Lent with St. Francis, Monday of 1st Week of Lent

They are to speak evil of none (Tit. 3:2); there must be no complaining, no slander; it is written, "Whisperers and detractors are people hateful to God" (Rom. 1:29). And let them be moderate, showing mildness to all me (Tit. 3:2) without a word of criticism or condemnation; as our Lord says, they must give no thought even to the slightest fault of others (Mt. 7:3; Lk. 6:41), but rather count over their own in the bitterness of their soul. (Is. 38:15). - St. Francis - Rule of 1221
