Aurelius Augustinus Said What?

December 23, 2011

“Man’s maker was made man
That He, Ruler of the stars, might nurse at His mother’s breast
That the Bread might hunger
The Fountain thirst
The Light sleep
The Way be tired on its journey
That the Truth might be accused of false witness
The Teacher be beaten with whips
The Foundation be suspended on wood
That Strength might grow weak
That the Healer might be wounded
That Life might die” – Aurelius Augustinus Hipponensis (Augustine of Hippo), Sermons 191.1, 4th Century.
