MARY, CAUSE OF OUR JOY, PRAY THAT WE RECEIVE THE FRUIT OF GENTLENESS

 GOD'S WORD 

"Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." (Matthew 11:29)

 "Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience." (Colossians 3:12)

 HEROES' WORDS

"He who can preserve gentleness amid pains, and peace amid worry multitude of affairs, is almost perfect." -St. Francis de Sales
