Thought of the Day March 14, 2018 Late have I love you

By 11:13 AM

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness.” Listen to St. Augustine’s own spiritual journey how he discovered the answer to his inner quest of hunger and thirst. “Late have I loved you, Beauty so ancient and so new, late have I loved you! Lo, you were within, but I outside, seeking there for you, and upon the shapely things you have made I rushed headlong – I, misshapen. You were with me, but I was not with you. They held me back far from you, those things which would have no being, were they not in you. You called, shouted, broke through my deafness; you flared, blazed, banished my blindness; you lavished your fragrance, I gasped; and now I pant for you; I tasted you, and now I hunger and thirst; you touched me, and I burned for your peace.” Does our journey sound similar? Have we not grasped at things rather than God?
