Possessing the Scriptures

May 10th Meditation

When you understand anything in the Scriptures, it is love that is manifesting itself to you; when you fail to understand, it is love that is hiding itself from you.  Those, therefore, who possess charity possess both what is manifest in the divine words and what is hidden in them.  -St. Augustine Sermon 350, 2

Prayer:  Lord, increase my faith, hope, and love!  How wonderful and unmatched is Your goodness!  -St. Augustine Soliloquies 1,1

Heavenly Father, please lead me to a deeper understanding of charity.
