A Collect for St. Augustine …

… whose feast day is today.

“Lord God, the light of the minds that know you, the life of the souls that love you, and the strength of the hearts that serve you: Help us, following the example of your servant Augustine of Hippo, so to know you that we may truly love you, and so to love you that we may fully serve you, whom to serve is perfect freedom; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Didn’t Augustine convert at about age 50? I LOVE that! It means there’s still time for me. 🙂

Great to hear from u Paul.

I’m right there with u!
