The word “confess” can be defined a few ways: to tell or make known, to acknowledge, to declare faith in. Perhaps Augustine’s honest conversation with God is at the heart of why his books and philosophy have helped so many pilgrims over the centuries. I struggle to be honest with God. It’s difficult to sort out and to admit to myself (and to God) my true, honest feelings about life, what I want out of it, and what I really believe or don’t believe. St. Augustine was persistent to keep the conversation going.
“Our hearts are restless until they find their rest in Thee ”
~ Saint Augustine of Hippo
