casting our shadows

"...what did it profit me that I read and understood for myself...while not knowing Him from whom came whatever was true or certain...

This insight from St. Augustine creates a beautiful image: When we're facing away from the light of God, and the light of faith, our own shadow gets in our way, and we can't see what is true or where to go. However, when we're facing into God's light and walking towards Him in faith, our eyes and our path are illuminated.
