Augustine Day by Day - July 1 - One Teacher: Christ

"Avoid being called 'Teacher.' Only one is your teacher, the Messiah. Let him therefore speak to you interiorly, in that place where no one can enter into your heart.

"On second thought, let there not be no one in your heart--let Christ be there. Let his unction spread in your heart, lest it be a heart thirsting in the wilderness and having no fountains to be quenched."

-- Sermon on 1 John 3, 13

Prayer. You have accompanied me on my path, O Truth, teaching me what to avoid and what to desire.

-- Confessions 10, 40
