St. Augustine of Hippo (detail)
by Sandro Botticelli

“Love, and do what you will: whether you hold your peace, through love hold your peace; whether you cry out, through love cry out; whether you correct, through love correct; whether you spare, through love do you spare: let the root of love be within, of this root can nothing spring but what is good.” (St. Augustine; Homily 7 on 1 John ¶ 8: PL 35)


August 28 is the Memorial of St. Augustine, Bishop, Confessor and Doctor of Grace (A.D. 354 – 430)
