Augustine Day by Day - September 1 - Christ Our Way

"Jesus said: 'I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.' He meant: It is by me that you come; it is to me that you come; and it is in me that you remain. How do you wish to go? I am the Way. Where do you wish to go? I am the Truth. Where do you wish to remain? I am the Life.

Christ as God is the homeland where we are going. Christ as Man is the Way we must travel.

-- Christian Doctrine 1, 34


Prayer. O Lord, my God, you alone do I love; you alone do I follow; you alone do I seek. You alone am I prepared to serve.

-- Soliloquies 1, 15
