de Sales: peace in conversation
Feast of François de Sales, Bishop of Geneva, Teacher, 1622
Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.
—Romans 15:7 (NIV)
Be at peace regarding what is said or done in conversations: for if good, you have something to praise God for, and if bad, something in which to serve God by turning your heart away from it.
... François de Sales (1567-1622), Spiritual Maxims, Longmans, Green, 1954, p. 179 (see the book)
