forbearance with each other

“We are also called to accept with compassion and humility the particular fragility, complexity, and incompleteness of each brother.  Our diversity and our brokenness mean that the tensions and friction are inevitably woven into the fabric of everyday life.  

They are not to be regarded as signs of failure, Christ uses them for our conversions as we grow in forbearance and learn to let go of the pride that drives us to control and reform our brothers on our own terms.”

-Paraclete Book of Hospitality
