03-13-2024 Sirach 23 V1213 Death equals words ugly




The Book of Sirach Ch 23 v- 12 thru 13 & 15

12 There are words comparable to death; may they never be heard in the inheritance of Jacob. To the devout all such words are foreign; they do not wallow in sin. 13 Do not accustom your mouth to coarse talk, for it involves sinful speech. 15 Those accustomed to using abusive language will never acquire discipline as long as they live.


Spiritual people do not use ugly words that are comparable to death because they have a deep understanding and reverence for life. Death is seen as a natural part of the cycle of life, not something to be feared or spoken of lightly. To the devout, all such words are foreign because they do not dwell on negative thoughts or actions, but instead focus on love, compassion, and positivity. The use of ugly obnoxious words seems to be the norm today where the “F” word seems to be blatantly spoken over-and-over-and-over again. To me they are words that have no couth no prudence no love no discretion.


On the other hand, people who are accustomed to using abusive language will struggle to acquire discipline as long as they live because their words and actions are rooted in negativity and harm. Abusive language reflects a lack of self-control, respect for others, and understanding of the impact of words on oneself and others. Without a willingness to change and cultivate more positive behaviors, those who habitually use abusive language will continue to perpetuate a cycle of negativity and harm in their lives.


The use of inappropriate words such as the “F” word in society can harm our youths’ desire to live with honor and respect for several reasons. Firstly, constantly hearing and using vulgar language can desensitize individuals to the impact of their words and actions. It can normalize disrespectful and aggressive behavior, leading young people to view such language as acceptable and even desirable.


Additionally, using vulgar language can contribute to a culture of disrespect and negativity. When individuals resort to crude language to express themselves, they often fail to communicate effectively and respectfully. This can lead to misunderstandings, conflicts, and a breakdown of trust and cooperation in relationships.


We all know that the use of vulgar language can have a negative impact on mental health and the emotional well-being of others. Research has shown that exposure to profanity can increase stress levels and contribute to feelings of anger, anxiety, and depression. This can be particularly harmful for young people who are still developing their emotional regulation skills and coping mechanisms.


Overall, using the “F” word or other ugly denotations of selfishness in society can harm our youths’ desire to live with honor and respect by promoting an environment of disrespect, negativity, and emotional distress. It is important for individuals to be mindful of the language they use and strive to communicate with kindness, empathy, and respect towards others. I describe this as walking and talking Salvation. To live in honor of Jesus Christ we use not the language of vulgarity but the Language of the Divine where love, faith and hope of grace lifts us out of despair and into a Heavenly realization that overcomes all fears to live in peace and absolute purpose. This is the life every parent wants their children to live; peace, passion and purpose of Salvation. At some point we parents pray our children realize this beauty of living Redeemed as we tell them the hardest thing you’ll ever have to do is face your fears and depend on Jesus Christ as the reason to live and die in a state of tranquility. We pray you heal from the things you don’t talk about but know in your heart needs to be changed. Amen.


I hope you heal from the things you don’t talk about.  the hardest thing I’ve ever done wasn’t something I had to do physically








Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. The Lord’s Prayer.


At the Savior’s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.


I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen Son in Law Mark Stern; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Our prayers for our niece Brittany. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

03-13-2024 Sirach 23 v-121315


**Death equals words ugly**


Death equals words ugly and sour

May Jacob’s inheritance never hear

Foreign words devout men run and cower

Sin wallow not without any fear


Talk course accustom the will be not

Speech sinful involvement none conspired

Abusive language unless they have forgot

Life as discipline never acquired
