Overlooking others' faults as "solid interior mortification"

Posted on Mar 12, 2022

That joke, that witty remark held on the tip of your tongue; the cheerful smile for those who annoy you; that silence when you’re unjustly accused; your friendly conversation with people whom you find boring and tactless; the daily effort to overlook one irritating detail or another in the persons who live with you… this, with perseverance, is indeed solid interior mortification.

St. Josemaria Escriva, The Way (173)
