A Penitent Blogger

Mindful of my imperfections, seeking to know Truth more deeply and to live Love more fully.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?

Where do you get your strength?

"No one ought to rely on his own feelings when he speaks out,
nor be confident in his own strength when he undergoes temptation.

"For whenever we speak prudently as we should,
our wisdom comes from Him,
and whenever we endure evils courageously,
our long-suffering comes from Him."

from a Sermon by Saint Augustine
in today's Office of the Readings.
