Augustine Day by Day - August 5 - A Redeemer Fashioned for Us

"God the Father said: 'I sent you one who would seek you out, walk with you, and forgive you. So he had feet to walk with and hands to forgive with. Thus, when he ascended after his Resurrection, he showed hands, side, and feet: hands with which he gave pardon to sinners; and side from which flowed the ransom of the redeemed.'"

-- Sermon 16A, 10

Prayer. Come, Lord, and act. Rouse and renew us, kindle us and carry us away, shine before us and be gentle with us, let us love and run toward you.

-- Confessions 8, 4

August 5
