Augustine of Hippo: “God will be all in all”

29 August 2010

“God will be all in all; that is, since God is love, love will bring it to pass that what each has will be common to all.  That which one loves in another is one’s own, though one have it not.  There will be no envy at superior grace, because of the unity of love.”

Saint Augustine, quoted by Aquinas in Catena Aurea.
