St. Augustine

Two people holding hands.
Love, and Do What You Will
“Once and for all, a short rule is laid down for you: Love, and do what you will. If you keep silence, do it out of love. If you cry out, do it out of love. If you refrain from punishing, do it out of love.
Let the root of love be within. From such a root nothing but good can come.”
Sermon on 1 John 7, 8
Prayer: I love you alone, Lord. I seek you alone. I yearn to be possessed by you alone.
Soliloquies 1, 1
