Augustine Day by Day - June 16 - Awake Christ Sleeping in You

Face the world as you face a tumultuous and tempestuous sea. Sail across this world in the boat of your interior peacefulness, without losing sight of the harbor. When the strong winds of its desires try to take hold of you, call for help and awake Christ sleeping in the cabin of your heart.

-- Sermon 76, 9

Prayer. I desire you, O justice and innocence, beautiful and comely with lumnious clarity and unquenchable satisfaction. With you there is profound rest and untroubled life. All who enter into you enter into joy.

-- Confessions 2, 10
