Carrying the Cross

The fruit of this mystery is Patience.

This is one of the things that we all could ask for more of. Patience is a virtue it’s also one of the fruits of the Spirit. Of all the virtues and fruits of the spirit this is the one that it would be nice if we could have more in the world. For many of us living in a world surrounded by instant gratification and doing multiple things at the same time patience can seem like a bizarre concept. Francis de Sales once wrote “Be patient with everyone but especially with yourself; I mean that you should not be troubled about your imperfections and that you should always have courage to pick yourself up afterwards.” Let us keep this in mind as we anxiously await the end of the season of Lent, and just in general.
