- "Offer it up!" when someone called you a name or was in any way mean.
- "Pearls in your crown!" should you complain after being asked to do an odious chore.
- "Leave room for the Holy Spirit!" if there was the possibility of a near occasion of sin.
Avoiding near occasions of sin was BIG. The textbook definition is to avoid external circumstances which either because of their special
nature, or because of the frailty common to humanity, entice one to sin.
In other words, don't put yourself in a situation that would TEMPT you to sin. One should avoid hanging out with people of low character
It's a parents job to remind their children to avoid near occasions of sin.
And to leave room for the Holy Spirit!
