Augustine For Today

January 20 – Saints Fabian & Sebastian

We have been promised something we do not yet possess, and because the promise was made by one who keep his word, we trust him and are glad; but insofar as possession is delayed, we can only yearn and long for it. It is good for us to persevere in longing until we receive what was promised, and yearning is over; then praise alone will remain.

On Psalm 148
