St. Agustinus dari Hippo

Terlambat aku mencintaiMu o Tuhanku!

 

“Betapa lambat aku akhirnya mencintaiMu,
keindahan begitu tua – begitu baru,
betapa lambat Kau kucintai!

Engkau mengajak, memanggil dan menggempur ketulianku,
Engkau bersinar, cemerlang dan menghalaukan kebutaanku…
Terlambat aku mencintaiMu, ya Tuhanku!”

(St. Agustinus, Confessiones XXVII. 38)
