The Nineteenth Sunday after Trinity

 Augustine on Psalm CIV

O GOD, forasmuch as without thee we are not able to please thee; Mercifully grant that thy Holy Spirit may in all things direct and rule our hearts; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Job xxiv. 1, Ephesians iv. 17   &   St. Matthew ix. 1
Psalm cxiv, cxv | cvii

But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins






Luke the Evangelist -- October 18th

Ouar, Commander of the Tiana Cohorte -- October 19 [Maximian 286-305]

Artemius, Tribune -- 20 Oct [362]



This Sunday Psalm 114 is appointed. This is such a graphic and beautiful poem. I love the verse that asks: What ails you, O sea, that you fled? O Jordan, that you turned back? In his essay, Augustine reminds us that it is by God's grace that we have been adopted as his sons and so are a part of the true Israel, which is ours by our faith; and that we carry within us the LORD's  sanctuary.
