Augustine: fit for eternity

Tuesday, August 28, 2018
    Feast of Augustine, Bishop of Hippo, Teacher, 430
Praise him, all his angels,
    praise him, all his heavenly hosts.
Praise him, sun and moon,
    praise him, all you shining stars.
Praise him, you highest heavens
    and you waters above the skies.
Let them praise the name of the LORD,
    for he commanded and they were created.
    —Psalm 148:2-5 (NIV)
    None can become fit for the future life, who hath not practiced himself for it now.

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your song is in my heart.
