Your Light will Burst Forth Like the Dawn

Saint Augustine

You are told to love God. If you say to me: Show me whom I am to love, what shall I say if not what Saint John says: “No one has ever seen God!”. But in case you should think that you are completely cut off from the sight of God, he says: “God is love, and he who remains in love remains in God.” Love your neighbor, then, and see within yourself the power by which you love your neighbor; there you will see God, as far as you are able.

Begin, then, to love your neighbor. Share your bread with the hungry and bring into your home the homeless poor; clothe anyone you see to be naked, and do not despise your own flesh and blood. What will you gain by doing this? “Your light will burst forth like the dawn.” Your light is your God: he is your “dawn,” for he will come to you when the night of time is over: He does not rise or set but remains for ever.

By loving other people and caring for them you make progress on your journey. Where are you traveling if not to the Lord, to him whom we should love with our whole heart, our whole soul, or our whole mind? We have not yet reached his presence, but we have our neighbor at our side. Support, then, this companion of you pilgrimage if you want to come into the presence of the one with whom you desire to remain for ever.
