About this item

Find lasting happiness through the two virtues that lead to all others: patience and humility.

Heroism, self-denial, and even martyrdom are worthless without humility and patience. This book shows you how to develop these two key virtues, no matter how difficult your circumstances may be.

You'll learn why Jesus said that to save your life, you must first lose it, and you'll come to see how the self-surrender in humility and patience is guaranteed to bring you lasting peace and happiness.

From this simple book you'll learn many things:

  • Ten ways you can start acquiring patience today

Challenging!
This is a GREAT book that challenges you to greater holiness, specifically regarding humility and patience. I didn't give it 5 stars only because it is written in an older style and is therefore somewhat hard to follow. It's worth it though.

Excellent book!
Nothing wishy-washy, no glossing over of sin. Just old-school Catholic spirituality. One thing to bear in mind while reading is that it was written over 100 years ago, in England. It's a breath of fresh air from the past!
