Patience is a virtue
of the Lord:
He awaits the return of His children.
Forgive my trespasses Oh Lord
For many times have I tested You.
I deserved the wrath of Your hand,
But You saw greater things for me:
Your patience has been enormous!
Grant me a droplet of such endurance,
That I may abolish my impious impatience,
Refraining from using unpleasant words,
And always reflecting Your serenity.
Great is the Lord Jesus
in His ways!

Then in his mercy
may he give us a safe lodging,
and holy rest and peace at the last.
Amen. continue reading
