Augustine Quote

"What then is it in the soul which causes it to take more pleasure in things which it loves when they are found and recovered than if it has always had them" (Augustine Confessions Bk. VIII Pg. 137)?

How can faith be tested apart from trials? Though our faith may be shaken it is never broken. Having been tested, faith is then strengthened. The apostate, being severely confronted and assaulted, surrenders his profession; while the Christian, though he may waver and falter, never wholeheartedly turns back. What a mystery it is that in what we many times think to be a sure footing is merely the occasion of weakness, which in turn grants occasion for strengthening. Faith when it is so strained, may seem to be pressed under unbearable weight, but is in the end all the more lively through its near death experience.
