Patience will help us to keep calm in our troubles and difficulties. It will help us think more clearly. As a result, we shall find it easier to turn to God when we need Him.
Humility will help us admit our weaknesses and nothingness. It will make us less irritable and resentful of our distasteful experiences.
These two virtues will us have peace in the middle of our troubles. Then with a definite plan in mind, we can proceed against our faults and conquer our temptations.
