(Our) patience ought never to be wearied or astonished at anything

Suzanne Aubert understood what it was to have patience with regard to her prayers during the establishment of our Congregation. She writes: “(Our) patience ought never to be wearied or astonished at anything, not even at the providential slowness with which God sometimes answers our prayer…God asks us for perseverance not with regard to Himself but to make us understand better the value of what we ask.” (Directory 24, page 331)
