Day by Day with Saint Augustine
By (author) Donald X. Burt
Day by Day with Saint Augustine by Donald X. Burt
Book DescriptionBefore he was a famous saint, Augustine was a notorious sinner. He wandered from the faith and, after a dramatic spiritual transformation in his thirties, returned to become a bishop and theologian in the early church. The short, daily meditations in Day by Day with Saint Augustine are candid reflections on the challenges to living a life of faith from someone who experienced the pitfalls. His wisdom is timeless, his words are profound, and his message ever relevant. Day by Day with Saint Augustine includes meditations for each day of the year. Each one consists of a short quote from Augustine followed by a reflection by Fr. Burt. They cover many of the daily experiences we all have such as living a life of hope, falling in love, facing death, and dealing with difficult people. Donald X. Burt, OSA, PhD, is a member of the Augustinian Order. A professor emeritus in philosophy at Villanova University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Father Burt has written thirteen books and numerous articles on the thought of St. Augustine, including Let Me Know Myself ..., Let Me Know You ..., and Reflections on a Dying Life published by Liturgical Press.
