Augustine Gem #1

Its time this blog lived up to its association with the great man himself, so here's a very simple, but profound extract from his Confessiones:

"So it was that you healed my sickness. To the son of your servant you restored the health of his body, so that he might live to receive from you another far better and far more certain kind of health."

Perhaps in this very short quote, we can remind ourselves that even brilliant theologians and philosophers ofter find very simple truths, often at the heart of their understanding of the Gospel and God's love.
