"Anima una et cor unum in Deum!" (Regula)

Thought of Saint Augustine
Do not despair, you who are blind. Come close to him, and you will be healed. You who are blind, come close to him and you will be illuminated.
Mary was happy because she listened and kept God's word. She kept the truth in her spirit more than in the flesh of her womb.
It is night while this life is lived. And when is this night illuminated? It is lighted when Christ descends to the night. He took the flesh of this generation and our night received the light.
(En. in ps. 138,14)
