“The joy and the hope, the fear and the anguish of the men of our time …. are the joy and the hope the fear and the anguish of the followers of Christ as well [just not necessarily in that order]”

“For if any one tries to serve God with two hopes, one of earthly felicity, and the other of the kingdom of heaven, the two hopes cannot agree; and when the latter is shaken by some affliction, the former will be lost too. Thus it is said, No man can serve two masters; which Christ explains thus: ‘You cannot serve God and Mammon.’” –St Augustine
