too far away

“I sank away from Thee, and I wandered, O my God, too much astray from Thee my stay, in these days of my youth, and I became to myself a barren land.”-St. Augustine, The Confessions of St. Augustine,Book II

In The Restless Flame, Book II, Augustine received 2 shockers on the same day: his father is dead and his servant girl said: “ Dear master-I am with child by you.” Augustine is only 18.

note: I’m reading together The Restless Flame, a novel about St. Augustine and The Confessions of St. Augustine. I challenged myself to finish both books in 30 days.Today is the first day.
