Augustine For Today

November 19 – SAINT FAUSTUS

“Listen, dearest grains of Christ; listen, Christ’s precious ears of wheat; listen, Christ’s dearest corn. Take a look at yourselves, go back to your consciences, interrogate your faith, interrogate your love, stir up your consciences. And if you discover that you are good grain, let the thought occur to you. Whoever perseveres to the end will be saved. Any of you who are shaking up your consciences find yourselves among the weeds, must not be afraid to change. The command hasn’t yet been given to cut, it isn’t the harvest yet; don’t be today what you were yesterday, or at least don’t be tomorrow what you are today.”

Sermon 73A.2
