Adult Friend Temperance
Day 22: Meekness
Be a good sport and keep your temper when you lose a game with your friend.
“Since it is impossible for us to go through life without causing annoyance to one another, it is necessary to have a great supply of meekness from which to draw to check sudden bursts of anger and preserve peace of soul.”
~ St. Francis de Sales
Today’s Saint: St. John de Britto
St. John de Britto was a native of Lisbon, Portugal, who became a missionary to Indian nobles. The great men of India were not interested in converting from Hinduism. John won their trust by dressing as they did and acting respectfully towards them. Thus he was able to teach them about Christianity and lead them to faith in Jesus. By his genuine meekness and friendship, John converted many.
