God’s Rest


“God rested on the seventh day

from all his work that he had done.

And he blessed the seventh day……”

And we ourselves will be a “seventh day”

when we shall be filled with his blessing

and remade by his sanctification……

Only when we are remade by God and

perfected by a greater grace shall we have

eternal stillness of that rest in which we

shall see that he is God.

—- ST. AUGUSTINE City of God, sec. 22.30
