St. John Chrysostom: Let the mouth also fast . . .

Icon of St. John Chrysostom“Let the mouth also fast from disgraceful speeches and railings. For what does it profit if we abstain from fish and fowl and yet bite and devour our brothers and sisters? The evil speaker eats the flesh of his brother and bites the body of his neighbor. ”

+ St. John Chrysostom, Homily III, On the Statues
