Who are you?

"But you, 'a chosen generation', weak things of the world, who have forsaken
all things, so that you may follow the Lord, go after him, and confound the
strong; go after him, you beautiful feet, and shine in the firmament so that
the heavens may declare his glory . . . Shine over the whole earth, and let
the day, brightened by the sun, utter unto day speech of wisdom, and let
the night, shining with the moon, declare to the night the word of knowledge . . .
Run into every place, O you holy fires, you beautiful fires! You are the
light of the world, and you are not put under a measure. He to whom you
have held fast has been exalted, and he has exalted you. Run forth, and make
it known to all nations."
— Saint Augustine, The Confessions of Saint Augustine, p.318-19
