Item description for Late Have I Loved Thee: Selected Writings of Saint Augustine on Love (Vintage Spiritual Classics) by Augustine of Hippo & John F. Thornton...

A compilation of writings by the fourth-century Bishop of Hippo offers Augustine's eloquent reflections, sermons, letters, and other essays dealing with the subject of love and our relationship with God. Original.

Publishers Description
"Late Have I Loved Thee" is the first collection of Saint Augustine's varied writings on human and divine love, chosen to reflect his lifelong preoccupation with "ordo amoris," the principle of rightly directed love. "My weight is my love," he writes in "The Confessions." He sees our ability to love as disordered by sin, so that we often choose badly what and how to love. Only by recognizing that we are commanded to love God first can any other object of our love be properly ordered, "Late Have I Loved Thee" draws on the riches found in Augustine's sermons, letters, treatises, and Scripture commentaries, as well as passages from "The Confessions" and "City of God."
Augustine (354-430 A.D.)""was the most prolific writer of Christian antiquity and the most influential theologian in Church history.""In his first encyclical, " God Is Love, "current Pope Benedict XVI acknowledges his indebtedness to him. When we read Augustine today, we encounter the same direct, eloquent passions his original listeners experienced, infused with his deep sense of human weakness and burning desire for union with God.

Ordained a priest in 391 and made bishop in 396, Augustine was also a pioneer of monasticism and founded a religious rule that is still widely used by men and women in monastic life.
