Gentle Woman


“When you encounter difficulties and contradictions,st FrancisdeSales5 don’t try to break them, but bend them with gentleness and time.” 

          -St. Francis de Sales 



For Reflection:

What difficulty or contradiction do I need to “bend with gentleness and time?” Can I exercise the necessary patience to do it?


Section Three:  Life Giving Words

With ingenious tact, she draws attention to her neighbor’s virtues, speaks about edifying things she has seen, and wields more influence by such delicacy than she would by calling attention to faults.  Always amiable and patient, she endures all kinds of disappointments and frustrations with a serene countenance, without anger or resentment.”
