Chapel Prayers

Some words of Saint Augustine

Therefore once for all this short command is given to you:

"Love and do what you will."

If you keep silent, keep silent by love:

If you speak, speak by love;

If you correct, correct by love;

If you pardon, pardon by love;

Let love be rooted in you, 

And from the root nothing but good can grow.

A Prayer of Saint Augustine

Watch, O Lord, with those who wake, or watch, or weep tonight, 

And give your angels charge over those who sleep. 

Tend your sick ones, O Lord Christ. 

Rest your weary ones. 

Bless your dying ones.

Soothe your suffering ones.

Pity your afflicted ones.

Shield your joyous ones.

And all for your love’s sake.
