The start of the Michaelmas Term

With St Augustine of Hippo.

‘Flood the path with light,

run our eyes to where the skies are full of promise;

tune our hearts to brave music;

give us the sense of comradeship

with heroes and saints of every age;

and so quicken our spirits that we may be able to encourage

the souls of all who journey with us on the road of life,

to your honour and glory.’

St Augustine of Hippo

 

We print the above prayer by St Augustine of Hippo, Bishop, theologian and the patron saint of St Augustine’s Priory, to inspire us at the beginning of our new Michaelmas Term.  May the spirit of this prayer accompany us all as we journey through this new academic year.
