Augustine Day by Day - July 27 - Two Cities

"There are two cities, the city of the godly and the city of the ungodly. These have been with us since the human race began, and they will continue till the end of the world. For the time being, as far as outward appearances go, they are indistinguishable, but their aspirations are very different. On the Day of Judgment they will be separated bodily for all to see."

-- Catechetical Instructions 31

Prayer. O God my Father, I am seeking you, not making statements about you. Help me and guide me.

-- Confessions 9, 17

July 27

Could there anything more Augustinian than "the two cities"?
