  • Late Have I Loved Thee is the first collection of Saint Augustines varied writings on human and divine love, chosen to reflect his lifelong preoccupation with ordo amoris, the principle of rightly directed love. "My weight is my love," he writes in The Confessions. He sees our ability to love as disordered by sin, so that we often choose badly what and how to love. Only by recognizing that we are commanded to love God first can any other object of our love be properly ordered, Late Have I Loved Thee draws on the riches found in Augustines sermons, letters, treatises, and Scripture commentaries, as well as passages from The Confessions and City of God.
  • Saint Augustine


    Saint Augustine of Hippo (354-430 AD) was born and educated in North Africa, and embraced Christianity in 386, thanks in large part to his mother Monica’s prayers and encouragement. Augustine wrote Confessions in 400 AD a mere four years after becoming bishop of Hippo. In addition to his Confessions, Augustine also authored City of God, as well as books of apologetics, biblical commentary, and theology.
