St. Augustine: Confessions of an Educated Elite

The-Conversion-of-St-Augustine-xx-Fra-Angelico “What is wrong with us? What is this that you have heard? Uneducated people are rising up and capturing heaven (Matt. 11:12), and we with our high culture without any heart—see where we roll in the mud of flesh and blood. Is it because they are ahead of us that we are ashamed to follow?”

-Augustine, Confessions Book VIII
