We begin in faith, we are perfected in sight

”But, as this faith, which works by love, begins to penetrate the soul, it tends, through the vital power of goodness, to change into sight, so that the holy and perfect in heart catch glimpses of that ineffable beauty whose full vision is our highest happiness. Here, then, surely, is the answer to your question about the beginning and the end of our endeavor. We begin in faith, we are perfected in sight.”

Augustine of Hippo (A.D. 354-430) Enchridion Chapter 1, Paragraph5
