St. Augustine, Doctor of Grace, ora pro nobis!


"You called and cried out loud
and shattered my deafness.
You were radiant and resplendent,
you put to death my deafness.
You were fragrant,
and I drew in my breath
and now pant after you.
I tasted you,
and I feel but hunger and thirst for you.
You touched me,
and I am set on fire
to attain the peace which is yours.”
—Confessions, Book X
