Salvation according to Augustine
And today is the feast day of this great saint. A quote:
Salvation, such as it shall be in the world to come, shall itself be our final happiness. And this happiness these philosophers refuse to believe in, because they do not see it, and attempt to fabricate for themselves a happiness in this life, based upon a virtue which is as deceitful as it is proud.
— St. Augustine of Thagaste, The City of God, XIX, 4.
