Augustine Day by Day - June 27 - Come and Be Filled

"Let us come to this Supper and be filled to satiety. And who have come to this Supper except the beggars, the sick, the lame, and the blind? Let the beggars come, for he invites us who became poor for our sakes. Let the sick come, for it is not the healthy who need a physician but the sick. Let the blind come and say to him: 'Give light to my eyes lest I sleep in death.'"

-- Sermon 112, 18

Prayer. "O God, come to me in your kindness. For you are the good and the beautiful, in whom, by whom, and through whom all things are good and beautiful."

-- Soliloquies 1, 1
