Confessions

"You are great, Lord, and highly to be praised (Ps 47:2): great is your power and your wisdom is immeasurable' (PS. 146:5). Man, a little piece of your creation, desires to praise you, a human being 'bearing his mortality with him' (2 Cor. 4:10), carrying with him the witness of his sin and the witness that you 'resist the proud' (1Pet 5:5).  Nevertheless, to praise you is the desire of man, a little piece of your creation.  You stir man to take pleasure in praising you, because you have made us for yourself, and our heart is restless until it rests in you." - Saint Augustine Confessions
