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. For a reflection, "Jesus Christ, son of David according to the flesh," please click on the image. Peace be with you!
