This means that we endeavor to develop in ourselves the habit of thinking, speaking and acting from an attitude of care and positive regard in all our encounters and circumstances.
We become aware of our negative moods, and choose not to act out of them. We choose to set aside the harsh word. We refuse to allow our anger to inhibit our compassion or capacity to forgive.
We deliberately search for ways to be helpful to others in our families, in our social gatherings, and in our community and that an awareness of God’s love will help us to bring an attitude of love to the whole of our existence.
We pray this to You, our Lord and Savior.
