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.

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!
