Journeying with the Founder Day #347

We need to see what virtues God wants from us on a natural level and on a revealed level. We find them in God in the Old Testament – patience, forbearance, forgiveness, mercy, the sense of paternity or fatherhood, etc. – and in Christ – meekness, sweetness, "Learn from Me because I am meek and humble of heart" (Mt 11:29), the sense of paternity and maternity, poverty (in the cave and on the Cross), friendship, compassion, the ability to suffer with others, love for the little ones and the sick, unconditional self-giving, the spirit of sacrifice. (Holiness)
