Augustine Day by Day - July 31 - Living in Unity

"Brothers and sisters dwell together in unity not by their own strength or their own merits but by God's grace, like dew from heaven. This dew comes from Christ. All you who wish to dwell in unity, desire this dew and be moistened by it. Otherwise you cannot hold firm what you profess."

-- Commentary on Psalm 132, 10-11

Prayer. Lord, you are my helper and the helper of anyone who reaches out to you. Indeed, you are my Redeemer for the very purpose of enabling me to reach out to you.

-- Commentary on Psalm 18, 15

We have been killed in order to live. We have been saved in order to live saved.

July 31
