Augustine For Today

December 15

“Be particularly mindful of the poor, so that what you deprive yourself of by living sparingly, you may lay away in heavenly treasures. Let the needy Christ receive what the fasting Christian deprives himself of. Let the restraint of the willing soul be the sustenance of the one in need. Let the voluntary neediness of the one who has an abundance become the necessary abundance of the one in need.”

Sermon 210,10,12
