Living Together, Despite the Distance

Lenten Reflections 2015: Readings from Augustine

No matter how many miles, how many day’s journeys, a righteous person may be distant from you, you live together if you are one in heart. (EP 100/101, 11; PL 37)

Sit a te justus remotus nescio quot millibus et mansionibus; simul habitatis, si unum cor habetis.

Rev. Joseph A. Komonchak, professor emeritus of the School of Theology and Religious Studies at the Catholic University of America, is a retired priest of the Archdiocese of New York.
