Be patient with your superiors
Superiors are often the objects of faultfinding. Submission to authority in some way is a necessary duty of every human creature. No one can escape obedience. This is the plan God set up for the world, that He would delegate His divine authority to parents and other legitimate human superiors. He Himself gave an outstanding example of submission to that authority, for St. Luke says He "was obedient to them," (Luke 2:51) meaning His mother and foster-father in the natural order of things.
Faults and defects are bound to appear in human instruments; hence, faults are to be found in superiors. A position of authority can sometimes bring into prominence the faults of human nature. Superiors, even with the best of intentions, will manifest certain defects. For instance, a superior can be the overbearing type, too obviously conscious of his position, easily aroused to impatience and anger, indifferent to the needs and complaints of those subject to them, and too insistent on trivialities. Some of these faults will inevitably produce a certain amount of irritation and friction.
God does not will the faults of superiors, but He does want you to be kind in judging them. He set up His plan of delegated authority knowning that faults would be found. In a sense, He uses those faults, and He desires those who are under authority to be purified by them. Superiors have an obligation to work against their faults, especially because of the consequences of their failure to do so.
To supernaturalize your obedience is to see God's Providence even in the faults of your superiors, and to practice devotion to duty and charity and patience in spite of these faults.
