Augustine For Today

MAY 10 – SAINT DAMIAN DE VEUSTER

“I sought for something to love, for I was in love with love. There was a hunger within me from a lack of inner food, which is none other than Yourself, my God. Yet that hunger did not make me hungry. I had no desire for incorruptible food. This was not because I was already fill with it but because the more I was empty of it the more it was loathsome to me.”
