Advent: things to do while waiting for Christ to come again

"If you are one of the good, you must put up patiently with the bad as long as you remain alive. If you refuse to do this you testify against yourself, by your intolerance, that you are not good...

...we recognize no good person who was left untested by the wickedness of the bad. If I may put it this way, the sword of your soul does not acquire a keen, sharp edge unless another's wickedness hones it."

Gregory the Great
