Fourth Day of Holy Spirit Novena

Day Four
The fruit of the Spirit is patience.

Be patient until the comin of the Lord. Look how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient over it until it receives the fall and the spring rains. So you should be patient and not lose heart, for the Lord's coming is near. (Mt. 5:43)

Missionary Cenacle Meditations
A patient person is a delight - like an anchor, like a solid rock. You always find patient people the same way. Their judgement is good because they think out of a calm tranquil mind. They take their time in judging things and analyzing things. (p. 306)

For reflection
In Baptism I received the Holy Spirit. The fruit of the Spirit is already mine. When do I feel calm and tranquil? How does it affect my actions?
