Augustine on Bearing One Another's Burdens

"The responsibility of love is that we bear one another's burdens. But this responsibility, which is not an eternal one, leads doubtless to an eternal blessedness in which there will be no burdens for us that we will be required to bear for one another.

"Now, however, while we are in this life, that is, on this journey, let us bear one another's burdens so that we can achieve that life which is free of every burden."

I found these thoughts in a little devotional book called Augustine: Day by Day (March 3).
