  • Happy feast day of St. Augustine all :)

    Below is good quote from one of his works and also today's reading from the booklet Augustine Day by Day.

    From his Confessions...
    "Graciously hear my prayer, O Lord, lest my soul falter under your correction, lest I falter in confessing to you your mercies, by which you have delivered me out of all my most wicked ways. Grant this, so that you may grow sweet to me above all the allurements that I followed after. May I love you the most ardently, may I cling to your hand with all my heart. Do you deliver me from all temptation even to the end.

    Behold, O Lord, you are "my king and my God". Grant that whatsoever useful thing I have learned as a child may be put to your service. May whatever I speak and write, whatever I read and calculate, serve you."


    ...

    August 28: For You I Am the Bishop
    Believe me, brothers and sisters, if what I am for you frightens me, what I am with you reassures me. For you I am the bishop; with you I am a Christian. "Bishop," this is the title of an office one has accepted to discharge; "Christian," that is the name of the grace one receives. Dangerous title! Salutary name!(Sermon 340, 1)

    Prayer
    Lord, whether prosperity smiles or adversity frowns, let your praise be ever in my mouth. (Commentary on Psalm 138, 16)

    Hope you all have a good day on the feast day of this most excellent doctor of The Church.

    St. Augustinus, ora pro nobis!

  • Happy Feast Day!

    From the book Kyrie Eleison: Two Hundred Litanies with Historico-Liturgical Introduction and Notes by Rev. Fr. Benjamin Francis Musser, O.F.M. (Westminster, MD: The Newman Bookshop, 1944):

  • Here are the Latin-English texts of the Day Hours of the Proper Office of St. Augustine taken from the Augustinian Supplement for an edition of The Roman Diurnal: Day Hours of the Roman Breviary (Tournai, Belgium: Desclée & Co., 1956).

  • Rev. Fr. Aquinas Byrnes in his book Hymns of the Dominican Missal and Breviary (St. Louis, MO: B. Herder Book Co., 1943), has the text and translation, together with commentary, of the Hymns in the Office of St. Augustine, which is also to be found in the Dominican Breviary.

  • I think i'll pass/copy the St. Augustine Solemnity and Hymms to a text document so that it can be posted easily.

    Thanks again!
