Yesterday was the Feast of Augustine of Hippo (354-430) - philosopher, theologian, prolific writer & primary shaper of early Western Christianity. He had a more than colorful life & became the champion & defender for Christian doctrine. The story goes that while worshipping in a church Augustine was spotted by a bishop who demanded he be ordained a priest at that very moment, against his will. So much for the discernment process! Out of the amazing array of quotes to choose from I was drawn to this promise of Christ's comfort.
