A truly generous soul must never stoop to criticism. As a rule, people that criticize never do it openly, but go about doing it in a whisper. That is a sin. Today when you go before the Blessed Sacrament, ask Jesus to preserve you from the cancer of criticism. Criticism is not a failure, not a human weakness----it is something that touches the heart. Should we have given way to it at times, let us resolve to avoid it and beg Christ to preserve us. To keep free of criticism, we must be humble.
