Augustine: building the house

Sunday, August 28, 2022
    Feast of Augustine, Bishop of Hippo, Teacher, 430
    [Jesus:] “For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”
    —Matthew 23:12 (NIV)
    If you think to build a high house of virtues, lay first a deep foundation of humility.
    ... St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430), paraphrased from Sermon XIX [Ben 69], Sermons on Selected Lessons of the New Testament, v. I, Oxford: John Henry Parker, 1844, p. 160 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 23:12; 5:3; 7:24-27; 11:28-30; 18:4; 20:26-28; Mark 9:33-37; Luke 9:46-48; 18:10-14; John 13:14-16; Jas. 1:9-10; 4:10; 1 Pet. 5:5-6
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, remove my sinful pride.
