“Wait for the Lord.
Let your heart take courage and wait for the Lord.
What does it mean, wait for the Lord?
It means that you may receive His gifts when He gives them, instead of demanding them when you want them.
The time for giving has not yet come.
He has waited for you, and so you must wait for Him.” St. Augustine of Hippo
Ouch… way to humble a girl with that last line Augy!!
When I found this picture, the caption read “Augustine: a pioneer of heart religion“… which, if that is not an official title for him- I think it should be. No one has ever written so eloquently & honestly of the inner workings of the human condition- of love, loss, sacrifice, desire, fear, repentance & so on.
Saint Augustine pray for us.
