Augustine For Today


“You are aiming at Christ exalted on high; come back to him crucified on the cross. You want to reign and take pride in the thrones of Christ; first learn to say, Far be it from me to take pride in anything but in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is Christian teaching, the rule of humility, the recommendation of humility, that we should not take pride in anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Sermon 160, 5
