Augustine Day by Day - July 26 - Hungry for God

"Additionally, I sought for something to love, for I was in love with love. There was a hunger within me from a lack of inner food, which is none other than yourself, my God. Yet that hunger did not make me hungry. I had no desire for incorruptible food. This was not because I was already filled with it but because the more I was empty of it the more it was loathsome to me."

-- Confessions 3, 1

Prayer. O God, be my inheritance; I love you totally. With all my heart, with all my mind I love you.

-- Sermon 334, 3
