O God, you are the light of the minds that know you,
The joy of the hearts that love you,
And the strength of the wills that serve you.
Grant us so to know you that we may truly love you;
And so to love you that we may fully and freely serve you,
Whose service is perfect freedom,
In and through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Join St. Augustine on a Journey of Faith
In Flame in the Mind, Bishop Michael Marshall uses the great prayers of St. Augustine as a touchstone, inviting us to make this fervent saint our companion in a pilgrimage of spiritual passion and enlightenment.
One of the 'great cloud of witnesses' surrounding us, St. Augustine of Hippo lived hundreds of years ago during the fourth and fifth centuries. Yet his deeply personal Confessions continues to inform and inspire modern pilgrims. The words of this ancient saint quicken the heart's response to Christ, beckoning us onward to change and grow. We see with Augustine that when our desires are fanned into flame by God's amazing love, the conversion of our heart follows - and with it, a change in lifestyle. The gift of grace turns duty into desire, legalism into spontaneity, and obligation into a life of gratitude overflowing in love, holiness, worship and service.
