“But how can we rejoice in the Lord if he is far from us? Pray God he may not be far. If he is, that is your doing. Love, and he will draw near; love, and he will dwell within you. The Lord is at hand; have no anxiety. Are you puzzled to know how it is that he will be with you if you love? God is love.” (St. Augustine of Hippo)
The Memorial of St. Augustine, Bishop, Confessor and Doctor of Grace (A.D. 354 – 430) is August 28.
