And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
Prayer for the Feast of
Saint Augustine of Canterbury
O God, Who by the preaching and
miracles of blessed Augustine,
Thy Confessor and Bishop,
didst vouchsafe to shed upon the English people
the light of the true faith;
grant that, through his intercession,
the hearts of those that have gone astray
may return to the unity of Thy truth,
and that we may be of one mind in doing Thy will.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son,
Who liveth and reigneth with Thee
in the unity of the Holy Ghost,
one world without end.
For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
