Divine Office | No one has ever ascended into heaven except the one who descended from heaven

In today's Office of Readings we encounter a reading from a sermon by St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430 A.D.).

He wrote an enormous amount and left a permanent mark on both philosophy and theology. His Confessions, as dazzling in style as they are deep in content, are a landmark of world literature. The Second Readings in the Office of Readings contain extracts from many of his sermons and commentaries and also from the Confessions.

Saints Alive! | St. Julian of Norwich

She was a spiritual mother to many, and an important medieval mystic whose response to the problem of evil is cited in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. After recovering from an illness St. Julian wrote her down visions she experienced in a book called "Revelations of Divine Love," the earliest surviving book in the English language known to have been written by a woman.
