EWTN.com - Pope: If We Can Resist Gossip, We Make Big Step Forward
Gossip is such a big sin of mine. I feel like since I don't have a job, I don't watch TV or listen to news on the radio all day, since I am home with a 3 year old...I have nothing to talk about except other people. It's usually not bad, it's mostly just what I consider "the truth", but I know that it's gossip either way. I think my ability to be interesting to other adults has dramatically plummeted in the last 3 years. What time I do spend on myself is usually not time spent enriching my brain with useful knowledge...it's taking my brain off any thing, especially since I have been pregnant. I know that gossip sucks. I realize as I am doing it, that I am being ridiculous...but it's so hard to stop. Pray for me that I can find a way to stick to my own business and stay positive.
