The Pro-life call to patience

rainbows1-1

Here are three insightful quotes about patience.

“Defending the dignity of the human person requires detachment from immediate results. We’re in this for the long term.… We have no right to despair and we have no reason to despair. Rev. Richard John Neuhaus

From an article by Colleen Carroll Campbell: A Lgacy of Connection and Common Ground in a Fragmented World

One of my favorite quotes from Mother St. Paul’s book Ortus Christi is about patience.

“Patience is a twofold grace, that of waiting and that of suffering, both are a great aid to zeal. The Eternal Word’s zeal for the salvation of men had existed in all its perfection and all its fullness from all eternity, yet think how long He waited! When the conditions were changed and He had at length become incarnate, He still waited patiently for nine months, and after that He waited for thirty years! This was zeal, zeal in its perfection. Is my zeal tempered with patience?”

Here is a interesting and encouraging quote about patience and perseverance from John Quincy Adams.

“Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.”John Quincy Adams (1767-1848)
