you have made us for yourself,
and our hearts are restless
until they rest in you." - St. Augustine
St. Augustine was a great man who had a dramatic conversion thanks to the prayers of his mother, St. Monica, and the help of St. Ambrose, the famous bishop from Milan. A modern English version of his famous diary, The Confessions, can we purchased from Amazon.com. It is well worth the read. St.Paul's famous words in his letter to the Romans (5:20) "where sin abounds, grace abounds all the more" seem like fitting words to summarize this spiritually uplifting work.
