Augustine For Today

FEBRUARY 29 – SAINT OSWALD

“All your work shall be done for the common good, with greater zeal and more dispatch than if each of you were working for yourself alone. For charity is not self-seeking, meaning that it places the common good before its own, not its own before the common good. So whenever you show greater concern for the common good than for your own, you may know that you are growing in charity.”

The Rule, V, 2
