Saint Augustine of Hippo

O God of wisdom and of love, you inflamed Saint Augustine with the love of Christ, who is your wisdom and your power. Through his intercession, pour out into your Church anew each day the burning fire of the Holy Spirit, to inflame all hearts with love for your beauty and your truth. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen
