OUR SAINTS

Our church is named after St. Augustine and his mother St. Monica

Inspiring quotes from St. Augustine:

 

  • “You are not required to understand in order to believe, but to believe in order to understand.”

 

  • “You have made us for yourself, Oh Lord, and our hearts are restless until they find rest in you.”

 

  • “Love, and do what you like.”

 

  • “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”

 

  • “The Bible was composed in such a way that as beginners mature, its meaning grows with them.”

 

  • “What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.”

 

  • “If you believe what you like in the gospels, and reject what you don’t like, it is not the gospel you believe, but yourself.”

 

  • “Miracles are not contrary to nature, but only contrary to what we know about nature.”

 

  • “Since you cannot do good to all, you are to pay special attention to those who, by the accidents of time, or place, or circumstances, are brought into closer connection with you.”

 

  • “To fall in love with God is the greatest romance; to seek Him the greatest adventure; to find Him, the greatest human achievement.”

 

  • “But my sin was this, that I looked for pleasure, beauty, and truth not in Him but in myself and His other creatures, and the search led me instead to pain, confusion, and error.”

 

  • “There is no saint without a past, no sinner without a future.”
