Today, the Holy Orthodox Church commemorates the hierarch, Bishop of Hippo Regius, Augustine. I know that many of this man's doctrines are in question, as are many other fathrs, but, nonetheless, he was a devout follower and lover of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Happy feast to all on this the first day of the Apostles' Fast.
Oh, holy hierarch, Augustine, interecede for us before the dread judgment seat of Christ!
Apolytikion, Tone 4
Today the whole inhabited world rejoices and radiantly celebrates thy memor, thou who hast trampled down heresy and confirmed Orthodoxy, and who hast given drink to the hearts of the faithful witht he river of thy words, O servant of the Most Holy Trinity and inextinguishable lamp of the Church, O holy hierarch Augustine, entreat Christ God that our souls be saved.
Kontakion, Tone 2
Holy Hierarch and theologian, boast of the Church of Christ, instructor of piety and confirmation of the Orthodox faith, uprooter of heresies, treasury of mystical teachings; blessed Father Augustine, most wondrous hierarch, ever pray for us all.
