Vulgarity
« on: March 13, 2011, 02:50:49 PM »
As Lent progresses, I am trying to guard my mouth more and more. Eating and smoking and now language.

Growing up in a world and pretty much the world I've been around as an adult what passes for everyday language would be considered by many outside the height of vulgarity.

My language is so blue at times it is black. Pretty much my "natural" way of speaking when passionate or around certain groups.

Never really cared to change it and afforded me community in various groups of folks, nor do I think use of such language is a sign of lack of intelligence.

But since being more involved with the parish and prayer, I wince at the words that fall out my mouth at times in content and style and manner.

In my heart now for whatever reason, I would like God to help me change my speech.

So God willing, as I approach the day when I first receive the Broken Body and Blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God, please pray that God help me to give up the vulgarities of speech which are part and parcel of my tongue.

Many Thanks.

If you have PMed me, the mods have taken my ability to PM away. Please see my email if you wish to contact me during my time of trial.

I know exactly what you mean.  Lord have mercy and help the pot along with the kettle.
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
