    I never dreamed that one day I would finished reading a 300 page memoir written by a ancient Catholic saint See how many saints who lived during the first millennium have written himself a memoir?I twice tried to read The Holy Bible once in English and once in Tagalog from cover to cover but failed I just got distracted by too many details and hard to remember names and ancient places and I could not appreciate what were all those characters are doing Excuses excuses They say that reading The Holy Bible needs the Holy Spirit to come to you so that it will be the spirit who will whisper the words to your ears so that you will understand the word of God Maybe the spirit is still contemplating whether a sinner like me is worth his time and effort Until I came to this memoir Written by a self confessed sinner who is now considered one of the most important figures in the development of Western Christianity Saint Augustine latin word for church fatherof Hippo 354 430 It took me than 4 weeks to finish this book Not a straight read It is impossible to do that The memoir is like a letter of St Augustine to God and in the letter he is conversing and confessing He pours out his thoughts his doubts his questions Some of those are funny based on what we all know now with the advances in science and technology He tells Him his weaknesses what wrongs he has done to others His sins in thoughts in words in actionsReading it is like uttering a prayer Read a page or two and you get that feeling that you have achieve your daily quota of prayers St Augustine poured his heart out in each page of his memoir Something that is inspiring for me to ask myself those questions he threw out to God and reflect on those thoughts that he put on the pagesThere are so many quotes that I would like to capture here but if I do that I think I will be quoting half of the book Most of them are in long and winding sentences but this first paragraph of Book 11 is my favorite Is it possible lord that since you are in eternity you are ignorant of what I am saying to you? Or do you see in time an event at the time it occurs? If not then why am I recounting such a tale of things to you? Certainly not in order to acquiant you with them through me but instead that through them I may stir up my own love and the love of my readers toward you so that all may say Great is the lord and greatly to be praised I have said this before and will say it again For love of your love I do it So also we pray and yet truth tells us Your father knows want things you need before you ask him Consequently we lay bare our feelings before you so that through our confessing to you our plight and your mercies towards us you may go on to free us altogether as you have already begun and so that we may cease to be wretched in ourselves and blessed in you since you have called us to be poor in spirit meek mourners hungering and athirst for righteousness merciful and pure in heart Now I have to give The Holy Bible another try I could not have finished this whole book and pointed that beautiful part if there was no Holy Spirit upon me Oh ye of little faith
