MEEKNESS AND PATIENCE

***

Jesus disappears

Mary, Joseph search for him

Find him in temple

***

NOTE: The virtues opposed to anger are meekness and patience. Mary and Joseph left Jerusalem, assuming that Jesus, their young son, was in their group of relatives and friends. When they missed him, they returned to Jerusalem, and crying and worried, they searched for him. After three days, they found him in a temple, teaching. Mary was not angry, but she had been greatly worried, so she asked her son, “Why have you treated us in this way?”
