Saint Augustine

"that wert within"?
I understand what he meant but " that wert within" is a bit much. I am glad English has evolved to such as it is today. Grin

I remember when I was trying to learn another language, the archaic stuff was all the more to learn!

I haven't heard that St. Augustine quote before.

Says it all in a few words!

I tend to think ugliness is a greater gift from God than beauty. Cheesy

This one makes me think, 'it is hard to obey when we do not love the one whom we obey', and how far I have to change.

It is so true Shin. When we do not obey God, can we honestly still profess to love Him above all else?
I know that for most of us, we really want to obey God in all things but sometimes the body is weak. Take my case yesterday. It was First Friday and I wanted to go for the all night prayers which include two Masses;  one at around 9.30 pm and the second one at around 5.30 am the next morning to conclude the vigil. It was raining and cold, there was a snarl up of traffic and by the time I reached home I was hungry and tired. ( all excuses I know for not going to church!). I ended up not going. Can I honestly say that I love God above all else when my comfort seemed more important? Sad
This is the question I am grappling with.

This is why I see virtue and understanding what it is as so important.

If I can see a particular virtue in Christ, and in a saint, and understand how it is properly practiced, I can aim for and pray for it to be learned by myself. I.e. then I know at least, what the goal is in a particular case.

And I have to keep praying to love God more! God help us!

Yes, let us pray for as Saint John Vianney said,
