According to Catholic moral teaching, it is in fact a sin... and we can't imagine any of the Saints swearing... Why is bad language a sin? (catholiceducation.org)

Oh, I can certainly imagine St. Theresa of Avila let a few rip in her day...

Quote:As St. Teresa … made her way to her convent during a fierce rainstorm, she slipped down an embankment and fell squarely into the mud. The irrepressible nun looked up to heaven and admonished her Maker, “If this is how You treat Your friends, no wonder You have so few of them!”


Quote:She also was a fierce reformer, who didn’t have any time for false piety. She once said, “From silly devotions and sour-faced saints, good Lord, deliver us!”
