“Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.”
Saint Augustine, my patron Saint, my spiritual guide in this life. God gave you the privilege to understand the mystery of this life in the light of the gospel of Christ. May you, having a high merit in heaven, sitting in your throne near to God, hear and intercede our prayers: pray for us to remain in faith, chastity, and in humility so we can follow Christ and imitate him so we can be with him in perfect state of grace in eternity. Hear our prayers, O humble servant of God, especially those are on the edge of losing their faith in Christ, convert those in infidelity and heresy, and every people who are being lukewarm in their service to our Church, remove the fear in our hearts, the enemy of God’s love so we can start looking to Christ only; but, If ever we find late to realize our deep love for God, intercede us not to befall in distress but in joy and in the hour of our death, intercede and remind us that our hearts could only truly rest to God, the source of our all joy and peace. Amen.
