daily bread

All my desire is before You, Lord, and not all before human beings. Let your desire be always before God. And your Father Who sees all in secret will repay you. For your constant desire is your prayer; if your desire is constant, so is your prayer constant.

St Augustine, On Psalm 37, 14. 

Cling to God with love so that your life may grow. Hold fast to the faithful, certain, great and everlasting promises of God, and to the unshakeable and ineffable gift of His forebearance.

St Augustine, Letter 248. 

Let me seek You, O Lord, calling upon you. And let me call upon you, believing in You, for you have been preached to us. My faith calls upon you – a faith that you inspired in me through by the coming of your Son through the ministry of Your preacher.

St Augustine, Confessions 1, 1, 397-401 AD.

Have we sinned? Let us correct ourselves! The way has not yet ended; the day is not over. For human and tolerable sins God has established in the Church a time of mercy for distributing daily medicine. It occurs when we pray, “Forgive is our trespasses.”

St Augustine Sermon 17, 5. 

We were sick and could not move. And so the heavenly Physician came to the patient; the way was prepared for the wanderer. Let us be saved by Him; let us walk with Him.

St Augustine, Sermon on John 2, 13. 

He Who has given us the gift of being also gives us the gift of being good. He gives it to those who have turned back to Him. He even sought them out before they were converted and when they were far from His ways.

St Augustine, On Psalm 103 (4), 2. 

Although the lost sheep could lose itself while wandering, it could not find itself. If would not have been found if the mercy of the shepherd had not sought it out. Similarly, the prodigal son was also sought out and raised by the One Who gives life to everyone.

St Augustine, On Psalm 77, 24. 

Just imagine the incredible kindness and mercy of Christ. He was the only Son, but he did not want to remain alone. So that humans might be born of God, God was born of humans. He is through Whom we are born, and through Whom we are to be re-created.

St Augustine, Sermon on John 2, 13. 

We are your little flock, Lord; we belong to You. Spread your wings that we make take refuge under them. Be our glory, and let us be loved for Your sake, and let your Word be revered in Your midst.

St Augustine, Confessions 10, 36, 397-401 AD.
