St. Augustine

Peace! Again, the contrasts are remarkable, as are the similarities. Augustine was a rhetor and wrote very elegant Latin. Francis struggled along with his ´bad Latin´(as one of the friars called it). Yet both used the language to express something of the inexpressible: the Goodness, Beauty, and Incredibly Personal Love of God. Thank You, lord, for both. "Our hearts are restless, O Lord, until they rest in You."
