Feast of Augustine of Canterbury, bishop, religious, missionary 

The original Canterbury tale

Imagine being uprooted from a monastic life and told to march across medieval Europe to Christianize a far-flung kingdom with unknown gods. This was the task given to Augustine of Canterbury, a Benedictine monk who became the first archbishop of Canterbury and a founder of the English church in the year 597. We would not be talking about Augustine today had he listened to the men in his mission who, seeing the task before them, urged Augustine to turn back and cancel the undertaking soon after it began. Encouraged by Pope Gregory the Great, Augustine and the men persevered and succeeded. If we stay the course through the difficult times, our mission of faith—large or small—can and will be completed. Hang in there!

Today’s readings: Sirach 36:1, 4-5a, 10-17; Mark 10:32-45 (349). “Come to our aid, O God of the universe, look upon us, show us the light of your mercies.”
