It seems that life is constantly getting busier and faster. Time and patience can be in short supply. Furthermore we can fall into acting as though we have confidence only in our own efforts.
As we consider this saying of St Madeleine Sophie Barat’s we can ask ourselves:
– do I take the time to stop, to notice, to reflect, and to pray before I rush into action? What practices might help me in this?
– what are some small ways in which I can practice the imitation of the patience of the Heart of God?
– when I recall the history of God’s grace in my life, how can I not have confidence in God?
