Saint Augustine of Canterbury - 3 Cl.

Bishop, Confessor.

He was sent by Pope Saint Gregory the Great to the Anglo-Saxons and is the great Apostle and England and the first Archbishop of Canterbury. He died A.D. 604.


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 the straying may return to the unity of Thy truth, and that we may do Thy will with one accord. Through our Lord Jesus Christ Thy Son, who liveth and reigneth...

'For, you remember, brethren, our labour and toil: working night and day lest we should be chargeable to any of you, we preached unto you the gospel of God'. (1 Thes. 2:9).
