Beyond Noisy Words – Augustine

You, who fill heaven and earth,

Always busy, always quiet,

Who are present everywhere and everywhere are fully present,

You who are not absent when far away,

Who with your whole being fill

Yet go beyond all things,

You who teach the hearts of the faithful without the din of words,

Teach us, 

We pray.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord.


  • St Augustine of Hippo (AD 354 – 430 AD)
