Augustine For Today

December 29 – Saint Thomas Becket

“The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. By Christ as man you wend your way to Christ as God. God is too much for you; but God has become man. What was a long way away from you has come down right next to you through a man. The place for you to stay in, that’s God; the way for you to get there, that’s man. It’s one and the same Christ, both the way to go by and the place to go to.”

Sermon 261
