Latin Doctor Quote Of The Day

Saint Augustine.

'Stir a cesspit, and a foul stench arises; stir a perfume, and a delightful fragrance ascends. But the movement is identical.'

Comment: We often like to accuse God of being unjust when we suffer, 'why us?' we cry. Yet, all suffering borne patiently for the love of God will be meritorious and bring us to union with our Saviour. We live in the valley of the shadow of death, however we must hope for a great glory to be revealed in us, where every tear will be wiped away. Endurance through humility leads to sanctity, grumbling through hardheartedness, will lead to a greater condemnation.
