St Augustine of Hippo

St Augustine of Hippo.

“Complete abstinence is easier than perfect moderation.”

“Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.”

“Find out how much God has given you and from it take what you need; the remainder is needed by others.”

“He that is kind is free, though he is a slave; he that is evil is a slave, though he be a king.”

And lastly …

““Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you.”

All of the above quotes are from St. Augustine and are wonderful thoughts to meditate on. It occurs to me that St. Augustine would have made a great Benedictine. 😉
