gaze-on-jesus:

“I have been all things unholy. If God can work through me, He can work through anyone.”

— St. Augustine (via catholic-christian)

How beautiful is the humility of St. Augistine. He embodies the reality of sinfulness and the glory of redemption. Yet he is no different than any one of us.

If we look in truth at ourselves we will find the same sinfulness. Perhaps the display of it is different, but the heart of it is the same. Our intentions the same. Now look at Christ! He has wiped it all away by His grace. By His blood. By His very life. Just for you. Just for me.

If God can use any one of us, He can surely use any other one. Each of us is a living example of perfect Grace. Perfect Love. Perfect Mercy.
