Another Nugget from Augustine

The Catholic Church

We are the holy Church. But I do not say “we” as though to indicate only we who are here, you who have just been listening to me. I mean all of us who are here and by the grace of God faithful Christians in this church, that is, in this city; all those in this region, in this province, across the sea, all those in the whole world. Such is the Catholic Church, our true mother, the true spouse of so great a husband.

–Sermon 213, 7
