Augustine For Today

September 5 – SAINT SHARBEL

“The Church knows two lives … One is in faith, the other in vision; one belongs to the time of pilgrimage, the other to the eternal dwelling-place; one is in exertion, the other in rest; one finds itself along the way, the other in the homeland; one is in the work of action, the other in the prize of contemplation.”

            On the Gospel of John 124, 5
