During his catechesis on theological virtues, Pope Francis addressed hope and patience as virtues he says have much to contribute to everyday life.

“Patient men are weavers of good. They passionately desire peace, and although some are in a hurry and want everything now, the patient have the capacity to wait.

“Also, even if there are many around who have given in to disillusionment, he who is animated by hope and is patient, is able to go through the darkest nights. Hope and patience go together.”
