You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Jucunda vox Eccesiae

Language: Latin

Jucunda vox Eccesiae
Agustini memoriam 
exaltet cum laetitia 
ad magnam Dei gloriam.
O pontifex sanctissime, 
lumen doctorum,
decus Ecclesiae, 
amator divi amoris,
speculum devotionis,
quam admirabile est nomen tuum 
in universa terra.
Propter ea, 
ille satis non te laudant
qui te dicunt Augustinum, 
sed verius te predicat augustissimum. 
Toto resonet in orbe
suavi melodia, 
Augustini confesoris 
laudes et proeconia,
qui triunphat coronatus
immortali gloria.

Joyful voice of the Church

Language: English after the Latin

Joyful voice of the Church
Augustine's memory
exalt with joy
for the greater glory of God.
Oh holy pontiff
light of the doctors,
honor of the Church
lover of divine love,
model of devotion
how great is your name
throughout the land.
not praise you enough
those who tell you Augustinum (Augustine)
but who calls you most August.
Resonate around the world
smooth melody
Augustine the Confessor
in worship and praise,
triumphs crowned
of immortal glory.
