Augustine: Who is God?

Tuesday, August 27, 2019
    Feast of Monica, Mother of Augustine of Hippo, 387
For who is God besides the LORD?
    And who is the Rock except our God?
    —Psalm 18:31 (NIV)
    What art Thou then, my God? What, but the Lord God? For who is Lord but the Lord? or who is God save our God? Most highest, most good, most potent, most omnipotent; most merciful, yet most just; most hidden, yet most present; most beautiful, yet most strong; stable, yet incomprehensible; unchangeable, yet all changing; never new, never old; all-renewing, and bringing age upon the Proud, and they know it not; ever working, ever at rest; still gathering, yet nothing lacking; supporting, filling, and over-spreading; creating, nourishing, and maturing; seeking, yet having all things. [Continued tomorrow]
