O God our loving Father! Today we celebrate the feast of one of your greatest saints of all time, St. Augustine.

His life story itself is a gospel, a good news of your love and mercy, of your salvation in Christ Jesus!

It is never too late to love you, O Lord, for our hearts are restless until they rest on you!

Like the song of the psalmist today, “You have searched me and you know me, O Lord” that despite my many sins, my great pride, you patiently wait for me to go back to you like St. Augustine.

In him, we have found hope and and chances to be become better and holy.

Like St. Augustine, give us the gift of humility of accepting our humanity, our weaknesses and sinfulness to be converted into better persons.

Like St. Augustine, may we use our intelligence for your greater glory and not for our selfish ends and other evils.

Most of all, purify our hearts always that it may always seek you and follow you. Amen.

Funeral of St. Augustine by Bennozo Gozzoli at Florence. At the time of his death, St. Augustine was a towering figure in the Church and the entire Western world at that time with his hundreds of letters, treatises and books that shaped our thoughts and provided foundations for our many doctrines still very much in use these days.
