Augustine Day by Day - August 1 - The Healing Physician

"Be assured that all your diseases will be healed. Have no fear. You may say that your diseases are powerful; but this physician is more powerful. There is no disease that the Almighty Physician cannot cure. Just allow yourself to be healed and do not reject his healing hands. He knows what he is doing."

-- Commentary on Psalm 72, 32

Prayer. Bring relief to a serious wound with your great medicine. Mine is serious, but I take refuge in the Almighty. I would despair of such a grave injury unless I had recourse to a great physician.

-- Commentary on Psalm 50, 6
