Augustine Day by Day - July 16 - Your Good Name

Conscience and good name are but two different aspects of truthfulness. Conscience is for your own sake; good name for the sake of your neighbors.  All who are solidly established in their own conscience but do not care about their good name become callous, particularly if they are in a position of leadership.

-- Sermon 355, 1

Prayer. I thank you, O Lord, my joy and my glory, my hope and my God. I thank you for your gifts to me. Keep them unharmed for me: they will be the making of me, and I shall be with you for my being is your gift.  

-- Confessions 1, 20
