In truth, Monsieur, patience and forbearance are the most efficacious remedies that Our Lord and experience have taught us for leading others to virtue.
Vincent de Paul (Volume: 6 | Page#: 624) To Pierre Cabel, Superior, in Sedan, 17 November, 1657
Who and what are my greatest challenges to forbearance, and how can I address them? Am I gentle in my dealings with others or am I aggressive and offensive?
