Augustine For Today

SEPTEMBER 8 - SAINT EUSEBIUS

“All our toil in this life consists in purifying the eye of the heart in order to be able to see God. If seeing God is our whole task it follows that the stages of the spiritual life follow the very same lines as purification and contemplation, and contemplation, in fact, turns out to be the supreme and transcendent reward of the double toil involved in purification.”
