Augustine Day by Day - June 14

Brothers and sisters, we are part of one Body, and we have one Head, in heaven. Our two physical eyes do not see one another, but they know each other in virtue of the love that knits them together. Together they meet in and are directed to one object. Their aim is one; their places are diverse.

If then all who with you love God have one aim with you, it is of no significance that in the Body you are separated in place. You have the eyesight of your heart fixed alike on the light of truth.

-- Sermon on 1 John 6, 10

Prayer. I ask you, my God, to reveal me to myself.

-- Confessions 10, 1
