Wednesday, Week 6: "put away all filth and evil excess"

everyone should be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger.

The virtue of temperance disposes us to avoid every kind of excess: the abuse of food, alcohol, tobacco, or medicine. Those incur grave guilt who, by drunkenness or a love of speed, endanger their own and others' safety on the road, at sea, or in the air.

-- CCC 2290
