Patience! 1 of 12 Fruits from God


The following words from ~
The Imitation of Christ by Rev. Thomas A Kempis.
The Voice of Christ
What are you saying, My child? Think of My suffering and that of the saints, and cease complaining.

For the genuinely patient man does not consider from whom the suffering comes, whether from a superior, an equal, or an inferior. Whether from a good and holy person or a perverse and unworthy one; but no matter how great adversity befalls him, no matter how often it comes or from whom it comes, he accepts it gratefully from the hand of God, and counts it a significant gain. For with God nothing that is suffered for His sake, no matter how small, can pass without reward. Be prepared for the fight, then, if you wish to gain the victory. Without struggle, you can not obtain the crown of patience, and if you refuse to suffer, you are rejecting the crown. But if you desire to be crowned, fight manfully and bear up patiently. Without labor, there is no rest, and without fighting, no victory.

Patience is also one of the twelve fruits of the Holy Ghost (Spirit) namely Charity, Joy, Peace, Patience, Benignity, Goodness, Long-Suffering, Mildness, Faith, Modesty, Continency and Chastity.
Pray often: Please O Holy Ghost in Your Goodness please flood my loved ones with Your supernatural gifts and fruits that we will as a family be together for all eternity. Amen

Thanks, WordPress

Does it take courage to follow Christ? Yes, especially these days when the “deep state” wants to remove Him from the world to make room for the New World Order. What exactly is courage?
Questions and questions, questions are always great in my opinion.
Past readers have already surmised my blog is composed of a religious character. The word prompt today was the word “courage” one of my favorite words
(thanks, WordPress) because courage is Fortitude, one of the seven gifts of the Holy Ghost. Fortitude!  FortitudeGift

Fortitude IS an essential cardinal virtue. Also, Fortitude, (courage) is a virtue infused supernaturally. Putting aside the natural virtue, which is from good habits acquired through the frequent repetition of good acts, we all have.

The story of the Ascension of Christ will bring an understanding of, infused virtue of fortitude. Imagine yourselves as one of Christ apostles in that day, and hear Him say as He was taken up from them, “but wait here in the city, until you are clothed with power from on high” (Luke 24;49). He wanted them to wait for the virtue of Fortitude which would soon be infused into their soul by the power of the Holy Ghost.

We learn from the Bible in the book of Acts, when they returned to Jerusalem from Fortitudewhere Jesus ascended, they mounted to the upper room and prayed steadfastly. Ten days later suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a violent wind blowing, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. On that day the Apostles through the power of the Holy Ghost, lost their fear, went forth and preached courageously, and baptized thousands-a great harvest of souls for the early Church (Acts 2;1-41).

Reading on the Internet Fortitude is described this way, “When someone has fortitude it means that they have emotional power or reserves and the ability to withstand adversity. People who have fortitude are described in an admiring way for their courage, and this word comes from the Latin word fortitudo, meaning “strength.”

Do you want more natural COURAGE or infused supernatural COURAGE?  ASK FOR IT!

Try it, pray to the Holy Ghost for courage!
