5:8. 44 AUGUSTINE: LATER WORKS have gained strength for that seeing, there can be no purifying of the heart to make it fit to see him, unless he be loved by faith. Faith, hope, and charity, those three virtues for whose building up is mounted all the scaffolding of the Bible, are only in the soul that believes what it sees not yet, and hopes and loves what it believes. Therefore there can be love even of him who is not known, if yet he is believed. Doubtless, we must beware lest the soul, believing what it does not see, feign for itself an image of that which is not, and put its hope and love upon a lie.

Is that which we love, then, not any Trinity but the Trinity which is God? Is it God in the Trinity that we love? But we neither have seen nor know any other God; for there is but one only God whom we have not yet seen, whom through believing we love. The question is, what likeness or comparability in things we know can form the belief by which we may love God, before he is known? 9 (vi). Let us go back, and consider why we love the apostle. Not, surely, because of that form of humanity which is familiar to us and which we believe he shared.

And were it not that above all we loved that pattern which we perceive in everlasting fixity and changelessness, we should not love the apostle because we retain the faith that his life in the flesh was correspondent and accordant to that pattern. Yet we find that we are somehow stirred more largely to love of the pattern itself, through the faith by which we believe that a man has lived in accord with it, and by the hope which forbids us, since there have been men who so lived, to despair of ourselves who are men like them being able to live like them; so that we desire it more ardently and pray for it more confidently.
