A bit of goodness to start your day.

Words of wisdom to develop patience.

  • “Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.”
  • “Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them – every day begin the task anew.”
  • “Dispose your soul to tranquility in the morning and be careful during the day to recall it frequently to that state, and to keep your soul within your control.”
  • Meditate on Christ’s sufferings to acquire patience: “When it is our lot to suffer pain, trials, or ill-treatment, let us turn our eyes upon what Our Lord suffered, which will instantly render our sufferings sweet and supportable.”

Today, I will take these tips from St. Francis to heart and develop more patience.
