Pope Francis - "Keep Quiet"

"All Saints,"  Vassily Kandinsky (1866 AD - 1944 AD)

From Pope Francis's homily today:

The Holy Father then outlined the correct behavior for a Christian. First, “do not judge anyone” because “the only Judge is the Lord.” Then “keep quiet” and if you have something to say, say it to the interested parties, to those “who can remedy the situation,” but “not to the entire neighborhood.”
“If, by the grace of the Holy Spirit – concluded Pope Francis – we succeed in never gossiping, it will be a great step forward” and “will do us all good”.

Pope Francis also spoke in favor of meekness.   Meekness and quiet - rare qualities indeed.
