St Augustine of Hippo
Who honours my living-room chapel with his presence in the form of a first-class relic. (See entries for the 15th August on the Assumption, the Julian-reckoning observance of which is today.)

O God, who openedst the eyes of blessed Augustine to the deep mysteries of thy wisdom, and in his heart didst set alight the fire of divine charity: give us grace at his intercession; that, seeing clearly in thy light, and burning with godly love, we may run in the way of thy commandments. Through Jesus Christ, thy Son, our Lord: Who livest and reignest with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost ever, one God, world without end. Amen.
- The English Missal and Anglican Breviary
