This booklet explains what patience is – its many forms and fruits – and is all the richer for infusing everyday life with the scriptures. Richard Clarke was a prolific writer of small, thoughtful booklets helping people to stop and think that the impossible could become possible – this booklet on patience is one typical example. Trouble of every kind surrounds us, he says, from without and from within, some unmerited, some through our own fault. It is almost strange that we cling on so hard to a life which is often so troublesome! Where does rebellion end and patience begin? What meaning do sufferings have? Christ invites us to receive both trouble and patience from his hands.
