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.

Amen.

Holy Trinity, by Hendrick van Balen, 1620’s

Prayer to Live in Union with the Trinity

Omnipotence of the Father,
help my weakness
and save me from the depths of misery.

Wisdom of the Son,
direct all my thoughts, words, and deeds.

Love of the Holy Spirit,
be the source
of all the activity of my mind,
that it may be conformed to the Divine Will.
Amen.
