Augustine For Today

MARCH – 22 SAINT BENVENUTO

The chief reason for Christ’s coming was so that we should know how much God loves us, and knowing this be on fire with love for him who loved us first, and for our neighbor at the bidding and after the example of him who became our neighbor by loving uswhen we were not his neighbors, but had wandered far from him.
