Happy those who feast on wisdom and savor her knowledge,
She will nourish and refresh them.”
 Hymn for the Office of Readings, 28th August.
Today is the Feast Day for St. Augustine, my favorite Doctor of the Church.     I’ve posted elsewhere on his remarkable thoughts, applicable to the science of today (Let’s Hear it for St. Augustine) , on his profound insights on God as greater than infinite (Mathematics, the handmaiden of theology) and on his sage advice for daily living (Good Advice from St. Augustine and More Good Advice) .    I’d like to add two more from the daily readings (Augustine, Day by Day, John Rotelle O.S.A, compiler)

LOVE (August 29th)

“Love is the only sign that distinguishes the children of God from the children of the devil.  To prove this, let them all sign themselves with the cross of Christ.  Let them all respond: Amen.    Let all sing: Alleluia.  Let all build the walls of churches.
There is still no way of discerning the children of God from the children of the devil except by love!” 
Sermon 1 John 5:7

THE INNER VOICE (August 26th)

“Consider this great mystery.  The sound of my words strikes the ears, and the Master is within!   Do not suppose that any human is the teacher of another.  We can admonish by the sound of our voice, but unless there is one Who teaches on the inside, the sound we make is futile.I, for my part, have spoken to all;  but those to whom the Annointing within does not speak, those whom the Holy Spirit within does not teach, go back untaught.” Sermon on 1 John 3:12

That’s it folks,
