Augustine For Today


“Since Christ is the head of the Church, and the Church is his body, the whole Christ is both head and body. He has already risen again. So, we have our head in heaven. Our head is interceding for us; our head, sinless and deathless, is already placating God for our sins, so that we too, when we rise again at the end and are changed into heavenly glory, may follow our head. After all, where the head goes, there too go the other parts of the body. But while we are here, we are still parts of it; we must never despair, because we are going to follow our head.”

Sermon 137, 1
