SAINT BARTHOLOMEW

Little is known about Bartholomew, other than that he was one of the twelve apostles and that he was present at the Ascension.

Some are said to have seen Saint Bart in India, others in Armenia, and still others on Park Avenue.

Collect:

O Almighty and everlasting God, who didst give to thine apostle Bartholomew grace truly to believe and to preach thy Word: Grant, we beseech thee, unto thy Church to love what he believed and to preach what he taught; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Augustine

Bishop of Hippo; Doctor of the Church
b. November 13, 354
d. August 28, 430

To say that Saint Augustine is a "leader" or "father" of the church seems an understatement. Few figures have been more influencial on the development of Christian theology. Among his many writings are his Confessions and The City of God.

Augustine's influence extends right into the Saint Thomas pulpit to this very day, where our priests regularly rely on his wisdom and clarity, and even on the lessons to be learned from his own life. Among so many examples in the trove are these:

To Be Transformed, Present Your Body by Fr Austin (2008)
The Love of Money by Fr Mead (2006)
All in the Family by Fr Mead (2005)
Patience Wins the Day by Fr Mead (2005)
Enter by the Strait Gate by Fr Mead (2004)

Collect:

O Lord God, who art the light of the minds that know thee, the life of the souls that love thee, and the strength of the hearts that serve thee: Help us, following the example of thy servant Augustine of Hippo, so to know thee that we may truly love thee, and so to love thee that we may fully serve thee, whom to serve is perfect freedom; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
