O devout Christian reader seeking union with the living God, this manual of St. Augustine, which by the mouth of tradition we learn was his companion in prayer, contains a collection of his short reflections on the mysteries of the Christian life, equipping you with the insights of a man great in stature and seraphic in his doctrine, so that you likewise, through the intercession of this holy bishop, who was once a wretched sinner, may be worthy of imitating his virtues and participating in his glory.

Few in history provide such penetrating insight into the spiritual life and the sacred mysteries of the Catholic faith as does the glorious St. Augustine. Amidst the panoply of the Four Latin Doctors, Augustine shines as a resplendent star not only in what he taught, but principally in the depths to which he attained in contemplation and Divine Union, aiming all his actions and all his heart—radiant with the Divine fire of the Holy Ghost—towards that one most sublime goal of the beatific life.

"To fall in love with God is the greatest romance; to seek him the greatest adventure; to find him, the greatest human achievement.” — St. Augustine of Hippo
