Augustine Day by Day - June 26 - Live from God for God

Know that the Body of Christ can live from nothing else but the Spirit of Christ. Hence, when the Apostle Paul explains this bread to us, he says: "Because the bread is one, we though many are one Body."

O Sacrament of love! Sign of our unity! Bond of our fraternity! All who long for life have here its very source. Let them come here and believe, unite with you and live. Let them cling to the Body and live for God.

-- Sermon on John 26, 11

Prayer. Thanks be to him who is desired before he is seen, whose presence is felt and who is hoped for in the future.

-- Sermon 24, 1
