Augustine Day by Day - July 7 - Lord, Save Me

"Great virtue is needed to struggle with happiness. We must learn to tread upon the world and remember to trust Christ. And if you begin to sin, say: 'Lord, I am perishing; save me,' so that you may not perish. For only he can deliver you from the death of the body, he who died in the body for you."

-- Sermon 26, 9

Prayer. Lord our God, make us blessed by you, because we shall not lose you. When we remain true to you, we shall neither lose you nor be lost ourselves.

-- Sermon 113, 6
