O Lord our God, who by your Son Jesus Christ called your Apostles
and sent them forth to preach the Gospel to the nations:
We bless Your holy name for Your servant Augustine,
first Archbishop of Canterbury,
whose labors in propagating Your Church
among the English people we commemorate today.
And we pray that all whom you call and send
may do Your will, and bide your time,
and see your glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
