Augustine For Today


“If you recall that you have neglected to make up with someone, then wake up and shake off your listlessness. If you are so keen to exact payment from your debtor, just think for a moment that you are God’s debtor. If you are ashamed to ask someone to forgive you, overcome this bad sort of shame with a good sort of fear, so that with destructive animosities terminated, with them finally dead, you yourselves may live.”

Sermon 209, 1
