Feast of St. Augustine

Here is a saint that transcends it all. Almost anyone can relate to him, his struggle and the beautiful way that he described it. Here is an excerpt from the Confessions that is read in the Liturgy of the Hours for today.

From Universalis: Office of Readings:

Your rays beamed intensely on me, beating back my feeble gaze, and I trembled with love and dread. I knew myself to be far away from you in a region of unlikeness, and I seemed to hear your voice from on high: “I am the food of the mature: grow, then, and you shall eat me. You will not change me into yourself like bodily food; but you will be changed into me”.

A great Eucharistic meditation for today and everyday!
