All of us have probably been the victim of calumny. Calumny can be especially painful if the person telling lies is someone you helped. Next time this happens in your life, try an experiment: Write the person’s name on an Index card, place it on your shoulder, and flick it to the ground—meaning you will no longer let that person’s sin bother your peace of soul. Your brain will constantly try to remind you of that person’s lies, but we must resist those thoughts exactly the same way we’re called to push away thoughts against the Faith, or thoughts against the holy virtue of Purity.
