Today is the Feast of St. Augustine. He didn’t get it for 33 years.
How old are you? Just askin’.
I still don’t get it most of the time…
He died in the year 430 as the barbarians laid seige to Hippo, where Augustine was Bishop.
Even the Roman Empire collapsed.
St. Francis de Sales reminds us that
“the worst thing that can befall persons who have good will is to want to be what they cannot be and not want to be what they necessarily must be.” (From his Spiritual diary.)
He goes on to suggest that we can’t always hit the home run when it comes to amassing spiritual riches, but we can make small deposits daily by our small interactions with others.
How’s that going for you?
Thanks for taking some of your precious time today to read my thoughts. My intention is to post a brief, daily meditation based on the readings from the day’s Catholic liturgy. I would appreciate your help and encouragement. This is something I’ve been called to do for some time. I’m finally embracing it. Father, forgive me for procrastinating. And for still not posting a meditation daily.
