    After reading Christ's exhortation to "sell all you have" in MatthewAntony sold all of his family's estate, gave the proceeds to the poor, and retired to the desert as a hermit, eating little and 03. St. Augustine book constantly. For if I ask them if it is true, as the poet says, that Aeneas once came to Carthage, the unlearned will reply that they do not know and the learned will deny that it is true. This much thou hast taught me: that I should learn to take food as medicine. The hearer is not expected to relieve, but merely invited to grieve; and the more he grieves, the more he applauds the actor of these fictions. And yet the opposite is what happens -- the mind itself is not hidden from the truth, but the truth is hidden from it. My infancy did not go away for where would it go?

    When, then, will it be? And where does this name come back from, save from the memory itself? His will is divided, but Augustine observes that both contrary wills were his own, not a good will and a bad will, as the Manichees believe. And who can tell how these images are formed, even if it is evident which of the senses brought which perception in and stored it up?

    Behold, the present time, which alone we found could be called long, is abridged to the space scarcely of one day. And I entered into the inmost seat of my mind, which is in my memory, since the mind remembers itself also -- and 03. St. Augustine book wast not there. Hence he was manifested to holy men of old, to the end that they might be saved through faith in his Passion to come, even as we through faith in his Passion which is past. Thou hast done this honor to my memory to take up thy abode in it, but I must consider further in what part of it thou dost abide. Augustine analyzes the nature of creation and of time as well as its relation with God. And yet if there is one lying close by we flock to it, as if to be made sad and pale.

For where have they, who have foretold future things, seen these things, if as yet they are not? But I have experienced it in my mind when I rejoiced; and the knowledge of it clung to my memory so 03.

St. Augustine book I can call it to mind, sometimes with disdain and at other times with longing, depending on the different kinds of things I now remember that I rejoiced in. Who shall relate it? When, therefore, I 03.

St. Augustine book memory, then memory is present to itself by itself, but when I remember forgetfulness then both memory and forgetfulness are present together -- the memory by which I remember the forgetfulness which I remember.

Who shall hold it and fix it, that it may rest a little, and by degrees catch the glory of that everstanding eternityand compare it with the times which never stand, and see that it is incomparable; and that a long time cannot become long, save from the many motions that pass by, which cannot at the same instant be prolonged; but that in the Eternal nothing passes away, but that the whole is present; but no time is wholly present; and let him see that all time past is forced on by the future, and that all the future follows from the past, and that all, both past and future, is created and issues from that which is always present?

Augustine turns to a description of the City of God, a place whose residents will behold God and live in eternal happiness and knowledge of God. Whence could such a creature come but from thee, O Lord?

Though revering Augustine, many theologians have refused to accept his more extreme statements on grace. As we grow we root out and cast away from us such childish habits.

Confessions / Edition 2

In this mood, the safer way seemed to me the one I remember 03. St. Augustine book once related to me concerning Athanasius, bishop of Alexandria, who required the readers of the psalm to use so slight an inflection of the voice that 03.

St. Augustine book was more like speaking than singing. I can name the numbers we use in counting, and it is not their images but themselves that are in my memory.

Yet those who put on such shows are held in such high repute that almost all desire the same for their children. Only the images of them 03. St. Augustine book gathered with a marvelous quickness and stored, as it were, in the most wonderful filing system, and are thence produced in a marvelous way by the act of remembering.

These things kept me 03. St. Augustine book from thee; even though they were not at all unless they were in thee. But wilt thou, O my inner Physician, make clear to me what profit I am to gain in doing this? Let now so multitudinous a variety of things afford me some example.

Is there anyone, O Lord, with a spirit so great, who cleaves to thee with such steadfast affection or is there even a kind of obtuseness that has the same effect -- is there any man who, by cleaving devoutly to thee, is endowed with so great a courage that he can regard indifferently those racks and hooks and other torture weapons from which men throughout the world pray so fervently to be spared; and can they scorn those who so greatly fear these torments, just as my parents were amused at the torments with which our teachers punished us boys?

And what they meant was made plain by the gestures 03. St. Augustine book their bodies, by a kind of natural language, common to all nations, which expresses itself through changes of countenance, glances of the eye, gestures and intonations which indicate a disposition and attitude -- either to seek or to possess, to reject or to avoid.

But the true Mediator, whom thou in thy secret mercy hast revealed to the humble, and hast sent to them so that through his example they also might learn the same humility -- that "Mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus,"[] appeared between mortal sinners and the immortal Just One.

For I hear that no body is moved but in time. Thou commandest continence; give what thou commandest, and command what thou wilt. But why, then, does not the man who is thinking about the emotions, and is thus recalling them, feel in the mouth of his reflection the sweetness of joy or the bitterness of sadness?

In the Confessions, this connection is not directly stated, but it is reflected in Augustine's attitude toward sex as a sinful impulse that reason cannot control, an intractable habit that only the grace of God allows him to break.

This is it. For if even then, since as yet it is future, it will not be long, because what may be long is not as yet; but it shall be long, when from the future, which as yet is not, it shall already have begun to be, and will have become present, so that there could be that which may be long; then does the present time cry out in the words above that it cannot be long.

A life various, and manifold, and exceedingly vast. For I did not, O Lord, lack memory or capacity, for, by thy will, I possessed enough for my age. Overall, this work by is remarkable for its expression of the beauty of the heavenly city and of the Catholic Faith as a whole.The Confessions of Saint Augustine by St.
