The middle school youth will come to a deeper understanding of the virtue of patience and the role it plays in their daily lives in order to develop a more patient and enduring heart for Christ.
The word patience comes from the Latin word patientem, which means “to suffer” or “endure.” Much like Christ’s endurance through His own pain and suffering while on this earth, God asks us to do the same. He wants us to possess a spirit of patience, in which we can access for help and guidance through our own suffering. According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church:
The fruits of the Spirit are perfections that the Holy Spirit forms in us as the first fruits of eternal glory. The tradition of the Church lists twelve of them: ‘charity, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, generosity, gentleness, faithfulness, modesty, selfcontrol, chastity’ (1832).
