Augustine Day by Day - September 10 - The One Vow All Must Make

"Do not make vows and then neglect to keep them. What vow are we all expected to make without distinction? The vow of believing in Christ, hoping for eternal life from him and living a good life in keeping with the ordinary norms of good conduct. As for any other vows, let each of us make any we wish. But let us also take care to observe the ones we have made!"

-- Commentary on Psalm 75, 16

Prayer. Lord, all that I am I am with your mercy.

-- Sermon 16A, 6
