That which is not expressed usually has more power than words. Evil has no barriers, it is not hindered either by locks or by distances. Evil can even wreck a car without any damage. Do you understand, then, how our bad thoughts, our bad moods affect others? That is why we must also find a way to cleanse the depths of ourselves of all evil. When our soul is sanctified, it radiates goodness. We then send our love in silence without even speaking any words.
