Saint Augustine of Hippoadmin | 28 August 2010
The collect for today, the Feast of Saint Augustine (354-430), Bishop of Hippo, Doctor of the Church (source):
O merciful Lord,
who didst turn Augustine from his sins to be a faithful bishop and teacher:
grant that we may follow him in penitence and godly discipline,
till our restless hearts find their rest in thee;
through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord,
who liveth and reigneth with thee,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
