With patience a ruler may be persuaded,
and a soft tongue will break a bone.
Patience does not mean being a doormat or a dartboard. It means a long, persistent will to soldier on and keep doing what is good, true, right and noble despite the strong gusts of hot air that buffet us from the mouths of foolish and temporarily powerful people. A small plant can slowly push its way through a tiny crack in concrete where all the storm of hell have not been able to make a scratch. Today, be patient, do what is right, and trust in the Lord.
IMPORTANT NOTICE TO OUR READERS
Catholic Exchange is free—but it is not free to produce. Advertising revenue covers only a fraction of the cost to generate reliably Catholic commentary and news, inspiring videos, a selection of the best Catholic blogs, and daily meditations and prayers.
To give us the strength and stability we need, Catholic Exchange is turning to you—our loyal reader—and asking you to become a monthly contributor.
Whether you can give $5 or $25, $50 or $100 each month, please leave something behind so we can continue—and strengthen—this important apostolate.
We are deeply grateful for one-time gifts, but we encourage you to choose “Monthly” on the drop-down menu. Your support will ensure that Catholic Exchange will be here during this most critical moment for the Church and America.
