How to Love Annoying People (feat. Danielle Bean)

People are annoying sometimes—and that’s okay. It’s impossible for us to get along with everyone we meet. But how can we approach people that annoy us with love and charity, so that it benefits our soul instead of hurting it?

Today, Fr. Mark-Mary and Danielle Bean offer some advice on how to love annoying people, and how God might be using it for your sanctification.

For more on how God uses everything—everyday—to sanctify us, check out Danielle’s new book, Whisper: Finding God in the Everyday.
