No swearing during Legion meeting!

Do we use vulgarities when we speak to our parents? Why do we avoid this? Number one: it is not respectful. Number two: we fear punishment.

The same principle applies to our heavenly parents, God our Father and Mary our Mother. It is absolutely unacceptable to swear during meetings. It is not respectful to God, Jesus, Mary and all the patron saints who watch over us. Holy names and swear words should never be in the same sentence!

Punishment will befall those who persist in not controlling their tongues. Your earthly parents may give you a whipping because you deserve it, but this is to prevent you from sinning again and losing your soul. Once you are in hellfire it will be too late.

In modern times where decency and custody of the tongue is thrown to the dust, and the advent of ‘free speech’, we must find a way to get rid of this bad habit and prevent it from taking root in our young. Mortification and good example will go a long way. Perhaps it is time for us to foster devotion to the Holy Name. Blessed be God. Blessed be His Holy Name.
