Augustine Day by Day - September 9 - Christ is Needy in His Followers

"Accordingly, when Christian receives Christian, the members serve one another; and the Head rejoices and considers given to himself what was bestowed on his member. On our journey, we must live where Christ is in need. He is needy in his followers, for he himself has no needs."

-- Sermon 236, 3


Prayer. Lord, you perfected my love so that I might surmount the dark entanglements of this world. Direct my desire toward the heavenly home so that I may be enriched with every good thing.

-- Commentary on Psalm 17, 34
