Point 15

“If your neighbor offend you in word or deed, or if he weary or contradict you, remember the outrages, contempt, and injuries suffered by Jesus during the course of His Passion, and say to yourself:  My soul, see with what humility and meekness Jesus the Son of God keeps silence in the midst of all the evil treatment He has to endure; and wilt thou nourish feelings of resentment?  Ah, no, my sweetest Jesus, for Thy sake I will suffer in silence.”
