Ruhelos ist unser Herz, bis es ruht in Dir.

Augustinus von Hippo, der von 354 bis 430 lebte, schrieb das Buch Vom glücklichen Leben. Das Endziel alles menschlichen Strebens liege in der Glückseligkeit. Glückseligkeit könne der Mensch aber nicht etwa durch Befriedigung an Gütern von dieser Welt erhalten, sondern allein durch Gott. Dauerhaftes Glück sei nur durch ein Leben in Gott möglich: "denn du hast uns zu dir hin geschaffen und ruhelos ist unser Herz, bis es ruht in dir."

Quotes by Augustinus

Now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face.1 This vision is reserved as the reward of our faith; and of it the Apostle John also says, When He shall appear, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.2 By "the face" of God we are to understand His manifestation, and not a part of the body similar to that which in our bodies we call by that name. St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430) Algerian bishop of Hippo Regius, church father, theologian, philosopher, City of God Against the Pagans [De Civitate Dei], chapter 22, section 29 "Of the Beatific Vision", 426 AD

Conclusion

 


St Augustine in his study (1490-1494)
Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510) Italian painter
  • Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you. St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430 AD) Algerian bishop of Hippo Regius, church father, theologian, philosopher, source unknown

 

  • What can be more excellent than prayer; what is more profitable to our life; what sweeter to our souls; what more sublime, in the course of our whole life, than the practice of prayer!

 He whose attitude towards Christ is correct does indeed ask 'in his name' and receives what he asks for, if it is something which does not stand in the way of his salvation. He gets it, however, only when he ought to receive it, for certain things are not refused us, but their granting is delayed to a fitting time. St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430 AD) Algerian bishop of Hippo Regius, church father, theologian, philosopher, source unknown

 

 

  • The weakness of little children's limbs is innocent, not their souls. St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430 AD) Algerian bishop of Hippo Regius, church father, theologian, philosopher, autobiographical work, consisting of 13 books Confessions, book I, chapter 7, 397-400 AD, 2002

 

  • Prayer is the protection of holy souls; a consolation for the guardian angel; an insupportable torment to the devil; a most acceptable homage to God; the best and most perfect praise for penitents and religious; the greatest honor and glory; the preserver of spiritual health. St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430 AD) Algerian bishop of Hippo Regius, church father, theologian, philosopher, Aug. ad Probam

 

  • Holy prayer is the column of all virtues; a ladder to God; the support of widows, the foundation of faith; the crown of religious; the sweetness of the married life. St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430 AD) Algerian bishop of Hippo Regius, church father, theologian, philosopher, Auct. Serm. ad. Fratres in eremo apud St. Aug., Sermon 22

 

  • Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe. St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430 AD) Algerian bishop of Hippo Regius, church father, theologian, philosopher, unsourced statement

 

  • Miracles are not contrary to nature, but only contrary to what we know about nature. St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430) Algerian bishop of Hippo Regius, church father, philosopher, theologian, City of God Against the Pagans [De Civitate Dei], book XXI, chapter 8, 426 AD

Original Sin

Originated in the 4th century

  • Jesus never heard of 'Original Sin'. [The term wasn't even used until the 4th century, so it's] strange to run a church, a gathering, an ekklesia – supposedly on behalf of Jesus – when one of its main dogmatic tenets, Original Sin, never occurred to Jesus. [Sadly, Western Christianity is dependent on and chronically] attached to Original Sin – but what they're really attached to is St. Augustine. The fact is that most Westerners believe more in Augustine (and his preoccupation with sex) than they do in Jesus. Matthew Fox (*1940) US American Episcopalian (formerly Roman Catholic) priest, author, DVD series Living the Questions 2.0 Living the Questions 2.0, 2001

 

  • Church father Augustine of Hippo (b. 354 CE) is well known for his prayer, "Grant me chastity and continence […] but not yet!" Less well known is his conclusion that because sex is a consequence of the "animal" in man – and animals have no interest in using sex to foster love or unity – the proper use of sex in marriage is strictly for breeding. […]
    Augustine's error has been used to fend off some of sex’s most uplifting gifts. In the last century, when Belgian and French Catholics discovered that gentle intercourse without orgasm was a "means of achieving a more perfect, more spiritual conjugal love," the pope condemned it. Blog article by Marnia Robinson, US American researcher, author, Intercourse vs. Orgasm, presented by the US American liberal-oriented online newspaper The Huffington Post, 16. October 2009

Linear and circular notions of time

  • When St. Augustine of Hippo was asked "What is time?" he replied, "I know what it is, but when you ask me I don't." And funnily enough, he is the man most responsible for the average commonsensical idea of time that prevails in the West. The Greeks and the East Indians thought of time as a circular process. And anyone looking at his watch will obviously see that time goes around. But the Hebrews and the Christians think of time as something that goes in a straight line. And that is a very powerful idea which influences everybody living in the West today. Alan Watts [LoC 485] (1915-1973) British philosopher, speaker, writer, speech From Time To Eternity, Kindle edition, 13 pages, BarAbbas Publishers, 6. February 2016
