Feast of St. Augustine

I so wanted to post this quote of St. Augustine's on his feast ...
"When a mother is teaching her little child to walk, she helps him and supports him when necessary.  She lets him take a few steps on level ground where there is the least danger.  She takes his hands and holds him up, or she picks him up in her arms and carries him.  In the same way Our Lord pays continuous attention to the steps taken by his children."


This is how our Lord sees us:  as little children who haven't yet learned to walk.  We may stumble, but he will not allow us to be seriously injured on our way.  We need only trust.

  1. I needed to read that this morning! My mind has been all over the place lately. Trust has always been an issue for me.

    I hope you are well. Wishing you a peaceful Sunday! God bless +JMJ+
