Quincy, Great article on taming the tongue. I’m convalescing from a back injury and need to walk slowly around my yard. Last night, home alone, I thought I’d get into the spirit of Lent ( 40 days before Easter. ) so I began listening on YouTube to
“Lent – St Thomas Aquinas”
Now I only reached the 30 minute point in the 2.5 hr piece, however this first section has detail on the merits of fasting.
Reading your piece on the merits of fasting from cussing it is as if Thomas’s 1270AD piece on fasting from food would be the next step in building ones willpower.
Love your work.
