Patience

I have long been aware that I need more patience. But reading the little booklet by the Jesuit, Fr Richard Clarke on the subject gave me a much more profound insight into the importance of this virtue, the ways to exercise it and the benefits thereof, both in this world and the next.

I won't give away the plot but do recommend it (Patience, by Richard Clarke SJ, published by CTS). I can honestly say that since reading it recently, I have already coped better with a slight illness, dealt more calmly with a host of minor annoyances, and responded more lovingly to the kids in times of stress... And as for my driving...

Of course, it will all wear off soon - but then I can always re-read the booklet as a refresher!

Hi, can I draw your attention to the new website of the publishers, The Catholic Truth Society (CTS).

www.cts-online.org.uk

It’s got some downloadable publications on it, plus it’s got a great range of Catholic books, DVDs and other things.

We’d appreciate if you could review it in your blog.

Thanks, Sophie (CTS)
