October's Virtue

O Lord, give me greater patience that I may be able to endure more for Your love.

Explanation: Patience is a virtue of primary importance and daily necessity. As we need bread to live, so every day, even every moment, we need patience, because every day and every moment brings with it its own trial. We become patient by making acts of patience, that is, by accustoming ourselves to accept peacefully all that contradicts us and makes us suffer. If, however, instead of accepting annoyances, we use every means possible to avoid them, we shall never acquire patience.

An Example: We may at our school come in contact with someone who clashes with us, or we may be given a difficult or disagreeable task. St Philip Neri once complained to Our Lord because he had to deal with an extremely insulting, disagreeable person. Our Lord replied to him interiorly, "Philip, you have asked for patience. Here is the means of acquiring it."  Pray for patience daily and be humble in your thoughts and actions.  Be sure to practice a small act of patience daily. 

Acts of Daily Patience….

  • Help a younger sibling or friend at school with their homework
  • Visit an older person…show patience by helping them or visiting with them
  • Take the time to thank a teacher or coach for their help
  • Do an extra chore at home without being asked
  • Slow down and stop by the chapel today and say a prayer for someone in need
  • Be kind to someone who is getting upset or angry
  • Spend extra time explaining a task to someone who doesn’t understand

Prayers of Patience

Dear Heavenly Father,
Praise be given to Your Holy name for Your forbearance and mercy. You have dealt gently with us in love. You have been patient with me in my humanness and stubbornness.  Lord, through the work of Your Spirit, prompt me to be more jubilant in hope, more patient in times of trouble, and more consistent in my prayer life. Teach me, Lord, to wait with faith and expectancy, and may my trials be seen as times for growth in grace. Through Christ our Lord, I pray. Amen. (Hail Mary)

Another Prayer for Patience

You put up with me, Lord, help me to put up with others. You don't get tired of me, or fed up, or tell me that I am too much to take. I marvel at your patience, Lord. How can you accept me with all my pettiness, my pushiness, my insistence to get my way, my anger at interference or interruptions? Please help me to be more big-hearted, Lord. Please give me the strength to be patient.  (Our Father)
