Saint Augustine

 

St. Augustine (c. 354-430)

“You know indeed how to pull down old structures and build new ones’ you, though, have remained in the old, worn-out ruins of yourself, where you should have been pulling down the old structures in yourself, so that you would no longer savor the things of earth.”

  • From The Works of Saint Augustine: A Translation for the 21st Century, Part III, vol. 10, translated by Edmund Hill. Sermon: St. Augustine’s “Sermon on the Dispute with the Donatists.”
