"Show Us Your Face!" (Augustine)

As we begin to develop a daily Bible reading time, we might also want to familiarize ourselves with the great literature of the Christian faith, including the writings of the church fathers of the first four centuries. This morning I happened to bring along to my Bible time a copy of Augustine's Confessions, a book that I really enjoy reading and that always seems to bless me. 

Here's a line I decided I'd commit to memory because it seems like the perfect prayer to begin my daily Bible reading with. 

I might render it as:

O God of all virtue, turn us around and show us your face, and we shall be whole. 

I know, the last thing you needed today was another Latin saying. But this one just stuck out to me!

Have a beautiful day!
