This is a very cool glimpse at the correspondence between St. Augustine and Pope St. Sixtus III. The subject at hand is the Pelagian controversy. Augustine had heard rumors that the new pope was on the other side. Their letters produce some lovely passages, including one that Catholics will recognize from a commonly used preface of the Mass. Thanks, Fr. Z!
