An Easy Way to Become a Saint - October 1

Continued from yesterday...

Thoughts on patience

...Our Lord tells us, "Learn of Me to be meek and humble of heart; and you shall find peace to your souls."

Each day let us try anew to be patient, and still more patient. If we live with disagreeable people, who offend and even insult us, we must take no notice of them. Let us only think of ourselves.

Three rules. Never speak when you are angry. Never lift your voice. Never say a disagreeable word.

In the home an impatient person is a devil. He is unhappy himself; he makes others unhappy; he commits countless sins.

A patient person is an angel, is loved by everyone, is happy himself and is loved by God....
