Truly obey
"Continually preaching, discussing, reprimanding, building, being available to all: that is a considerable burden, a heavy burden, an endless sorrow.” This is how St. Augustine described his mission, at a time when he understood that his dream of contemplative life had vanished. He understood that the great philosophical work he wanted to write would remain forever unwritten ... Instead, he would teach everyone something more precious: the Gospel translated into the language of daily life. Wisdom of the heart means obeying God’s will, not our own. It means being there for all, and giving our life so that others can find Him, who is true life.
