The Virtuous Life

Impatience with a side of God

Blog Published: June 9, 2014

I am not gifted with patience, nor have I prayed to have this gift. I know all too well that if I did ask, the Holy Spirit will oblige and give me ample opportunities to "acquire" the gift of patience. Fortunately God does not leave me alone in my questionable decisions -- but it's not patience that God helps me out with!

And then God said, "Pay it forward."

Blog Published: March 8, 2013

Sacred Scripture tells us repeatedly to look out for one another and especially to look out for the needs of the poor and marginalized. We are told to be kind to one another. We are taught the Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" (Luke 6:31). Is that another way of saying “pay it forward”?

Can you "find yourself" by "losing yourself"?
