Making daily progress towards God, by Augustine of Hippo, 430-543 A.D.


“As Christians, our task is to make daily progress toward God. Our pilgrimage on earth is a school in which God is the only teacher, and it demands good students, not ones who play truant. In this school we learn something every day. We learn something from the commandments, something from examples, and something from Sacraments. These things are remedies for our wounds and materials for our studies.” (excerpt from Sermon 16A,1)
