‘Thou hast made us for Thyself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee.’
‘There is no saint without a past, no sinner without a future.’
Faith is to believe what we do not see and the reward of this faith is to see what we believe.
‘God has promised forgiveness to your repentance, but He has not promised tomorrow to your procrastination.’
‘If you believe what you like in the Gospels and reject what you do not like, it is not the Gospels you believe, but yourself.’
If you are struggling with habitual sin, errant children, or a lack of motivation to repent of your sins, pray to St Augustine (and to his mother, St Monica).
St Augustine, Bishop and Doctor of the Church, pray for us.
