Augustine For Today


 “If you were cold, withered, worried only about yourself, practically self-sufficient, thinking that you gain nothing by concerning yourself about other people’s sins and that the only thing that is important is to keep yourself upright before God, do you not get a mental picture of that servant who hid his talent and not want to have it bear fruit?”

            On the Gospel of John 10, 9
