9) BE PATIENT.
God is love. Love is patient. Love! Be patient. Toward fellow human beings. Made in the image and likeness of God, like us. Even when if disagree. Even when if don’t understand. Even when if might question or disapprove certain beliefs and behaviors. Love the person all the same. Even when being lovingly patient is not your first impulse. Make patience your first impulse toward another! God does. Pope Francis explains:
Love is patient

91. God is “slow to anger” (Ex 34:6; Num 14:18). It refers, then, to the quality of one who does not act on impulse and avoids giving offense. We find this quality in the God of the Covenant, who calls us to imitate him also within the life of the family. Saint Paul’s texts using this word need to be read in the light of the Book of Wisdom (cf. 11:23; 12:2, 15-18), which extols God’s restraint, as leaving open the possibility of repentance, yet insists on his power, as revealed in his acts of mercy. God’s “patience”, shown in his mercy towards sinners, is a sign of his real power. (Amoris Laetitia, 91: https://w2.vatican.va/content/dam/francesco/pdf/apost_exhortations/documents/papa-francesco_esortazione-ap_20160319_amoris-laetitia_en.pdf)

LET US PRAY:
Lord, #MercyMe and allow me to know and show the #MisericordiaeVultus, the #FaceOfMercy to others. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
