Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them ,
every day begin the task anew.

So valuable to heaven is the dignity of the human soul that every member of the human race has a guardian angel from the moment the person begins to be.

St. Jerome

Yes, and we aught to talk to them often, as they are with us always. Smiley
Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom His love commits me here,
ever this day be at my side,
to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen.

“ No matter how good food is, if mixed with poison, it may cause the death of him who eats it.
   So it is with conversation.  A single bad word, an evil action, an unbecoming joke, is often enough to harm one or more young listeners, and may later on cause them to lose God’s grace.”

St. John Bosco

Sometimes it may happen that one attends an official function that is concluded with a dinner party or some such things. Almost always, at least the ones I used to attend, the master of ceremony took it upon himself to tell jokes. Most of these so called jokes tended to be dirty jokes but people laughed and had a great time. It is a long time since I last attended such a  function but I bet it is still practised.

'Prayer is, beyond doubt, the most powerful weapon the Lord gives us to conquer evil passions and temptations of the devil; but we must really put ourselves into our prayer: it is not enough just to say the words, it must come from the heart. And also prayer needs to be continuous, we must pray no matter what kind of situation we find ourselves in: the warfare we are engaged in is on-going, so our prayer must be on-going also.'

St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori

It makes me think of St. Martha and St. Mary!

St. Martha is considered the example of the active life and St. Mary the contemplative life.
