5. The Confessions is the story of Augustine 's return to God, so it is appropriate that story should begin with Augustine 's tribute of praise to the God he loves. In making a confession of praise, Augustine says, God is as close to him as his own life and experiences, always working for Augustine 's good, even when Augustine is unable or unwilling to recognize that truth. Throughout his youth when he lived a dissipated life of sin, and drifted away from the Church, it may have looked like God was hidden; however he was very much present within the lives of those interacting with Augustine on a daily basis. Many people who helped God be present in Augustine’s life include his mother, St. Monica, his friends, Alypius, Nebridius, Ponticianus, Victorinus and Simplicanus, as well as St. Ambrose.

The narrator suggests that Joseph Grand is the true hero in the novel, because he is the only ordinary character. Grand symbolizes the general population during times of crisis; he may not necessarily be heavily involved with or directly affected by the plague, but that is why “[his] small daily effort” (137) to combat the plague is most commendable in comparison to Tarrou and Rieux. It is not enough for one or a few people to be dedicated to a cause; rather it is important for everyone else, the “ordinary people” to be involved - to stand in solidarity with those suppressed, attacked, or affected by a force - because as the clique saying goes: “strength comes in numbers.” An individual’s, or in this case a portion of the population’s, issue
