Day 7 – CHRIST
For Augustine teaching was only possible because of Christ, the LOGOS, and ultimately when Christ became our teacher. For only Christ as God and man spoke to us both from within and from without at once. Only Christ the Son of the Father, incarnate of the Virgin Mary, joined our internal and external discourses. Only because of Him, and ultimately by Him, can we discover from experience the deep structure of the self which we had forgotten. For this self-distracted age of Western culture, the determining world culture, there can be neither authentic being nor loveable knowledge, nor decision and commitment which are authentically acts of the will, unless the self be confronted and discovered again in what it experiences. Our teaching must have again that Christian and Augustinian character.
