SAINT AGUSTIN OF HIPONA.

If you keep quiet, keep quiet with love; if you scream, scream with love. And if you correct, correct with love; if you forgive, forgive with love.

Saint Augustin, philosopher and theologian, was a man who insatiably searched for the truth. And, looking for it, he came across God.

An experience in which he expresses himself: “Late I loved you, beauty so old and so new. Late I loved you! You were inside me and I was outside, and outside I was looking for you. “

Three elements:

He is surprised by God. Let’s look at how he describes it, wondering how we describe God in our experience.

It opens another level: from reason to love, to conclude that faith and reason are complementary spaces.
