TOOLS FOR GOOD WORKS

Yearn for everlasting life with holy desire.

Day by day remind yourself that you are going to die.

Hour by hour keep careful watch over all you do, aware that God's gaze is upon you, wherever you may be.

As soon as wrongful thoughts come into your heart, dash them against Christ and disclose them to your spiritual guide.

Guard your lips from harmful or deceptive speech.

Prefer moderation in speech and speak no foolish chatter, nothing just to provoke laughter, do not love immoderate or boisterous laughter.
