St. Augustine on Sheer Grace - A Christmas Thought

An Excerpt From a Christmas Sermon
By St. Augustine, Bishop

Let us then joyfully celebrate the coming of our salvation and redemption. Let us celebrate the festive day on which he who is the great and eternal day came from the great and endless day of eternity into our own short day of time... Ask if this were merited; ask for its reason, for its justification, and see whether you will find any other answer but sheer grace.
