Brotherly Spirit

“Let it be a brotherly spirit, who, in finding good in me, rejoices over me, and in finding fault in me, is full of sorrow over me.  To such I will make myself known; let them sigh with relief over my good things, and with sorrow over my bad things.  My good things are your statutes and your gifts, my bad things are my sins and your judgements.  Let them sigh with relief for the former, with sorrow for the latter.”

Augustine
