Thought for the Day – 23 August – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)
“An outward show of patience, will hardly avail us much in God’s eyes, unless it is accompanied by interior patience which, consists in the possession of complete mastery over all our faculties.
We should be able to control our feelings, as well as our actions.
This is a difficult virtue but, it is the duty of every sincere Catholic, to try and acquire it.
Only the grace of God and constant effort, will enable us to succeed but when we have, at last, mastered our unruly and selfish impulses, we shall have arrived at a state of peace and perfection.
“By your patience, you will win your souls” (Lk 21:19).”
