Pope’s quotes: Patience and perseverance

A quote from Pope Francis:

“The Word of God entered with ‘patience’ in the moment of the Incarnation and thus unto death on the Cross. Patience and perseverance. We do not have a ‘magic wand’ for everything, but we do have our trust in the Lord Who accompanies us and never abandons us. … Let us do good, but without expected to be recompensed. Let us sow and offer witness. Our witness is the beginning of an evangelization that touches the heart and transforms is. Words without example are of no use! Our witness is that brings and gives validity to our words.”

— Audience with Pontifical Council for the Promotion of New Evangelization, Sept. 20, 2014
