Augustine For Today

January 9 – SAINT JULIAN

We already know the head and the body. He is the head and we the body. When we hear His voice we must understand it as coming from the head and the body, because the whole suffered. We also suffered in him and, what we suffer. He suffers in us. If a man’s head suffers, can we say that the hands suffer not? Or, if the hands suffer, can it be said that the head suffers not?
