For Our Sakes, He

       

                   'He so loved us that for our sakes, He
                   through Whom time was made, was made in time...
                   He Who made man, was made man.
                   He was given existence by a mother whom He had brought into existence.'

St. Augustine


Painting: Alice Havers, 'But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart'

    1. Thank you. I was just thinking this morning about what a joy it is to live soaked in - and to share - treasures from the saints.
