Patience and love come from God. He allows his graces to pour upon you during the Christmas season and the epiphany.
How dare you take this for granted! With patience and love, mercy falls upon you as you attend the sacrament of reconciliation this week
TONIGHT OF ALL NIGHTS, the day before Christmas Eve, my husband and I got into an argument.
He had texted me a video by stoics. He said to listen to it if I don’t want to listen to him. I did.
At dinner, I asked, “Aren’t stoics those people that don’t believe in God?” He said, “No!” I looked it up on the Google search engine and showed him that he was wrong.
While Stoics do not believe in God, they do believe in the laws of nature. These laws follow an orderly logic. Stoics also say that following the laws of nature limits human choice because they follow a god’s plan. This means that God cannot exist before the universe was created.
Although I was right, I did not feel the sense of pride that I was correct. Instead, I felt a grace of patience and love.
In response to being pointed out that he was wrong, he replied, “I don’t care what it says on the internet!!!!”
I understood him. . . has this happened to you and your spouse?
