The example of Your patience means a lot to me. It offers hope and consolation to one such as me who, in so many extraneous worldly cares, is like Your apostles. There is the bright hope that Your long-suffering tolerance of their anxious, trivial concerns, and child-like questions can, in Your all-engulfing love, also be applied to one who cannot even for an hour get rid of the worldly distractions that prevent me from focusing on You.
You display this tolerance not only as a beacon of hope despite all my weaknesses and selfishness but, and more importantly, as an example of what love bears for the other. It’s always so much easier to find fault with those closest to you than to find fault with yourself. Pet peeves are easy to enumerate but not so easy to tolerate. Yet, as much as You must certainly have had pet peeves with Your apostles, Your love overcame them and Your patient tolerance always prevailed.
