To me, the worst thing would be that out of naiveté, or out of stupidity, or out of fear, you didn't know when to speak or you didn't know what to say. What I ask from God is that He illuminate me so that I can do what I need to do.~ Father Miguel Lopez ~
on his ministry in Michoacan, Mexico,
a state where the violence of
the narcotics trade leads
to assassinations, kidnappings,
When I was little, I would sometimes get in trouble for things I would say. Given that I am an enneagram 8, bluntness is hard-wired in me. That has its advantages and disadvantages.
Learning not to say everything that crosses my mind and learning some tactfulness has been a great benefit. However, sometimes I blurt.
I continue to pray that not only my feet but my mind and my lips be guided by the Divine. God has no small challenge steering me.
