"Tu es vas electionis, Sancte Paule Apostole"

A special day for all religious orders who follow his charism.

Lead us Great Teacher Paul
Lead us, great teacher Paul, in wisdom's ways,
And lift our hearts with thine to heaven's high throne;
Till faith beholds the clear meridian blaze
And sun-like in the soul reigns charity alone

Praise, blessing, majesty, through endless days
Be to the Trinity immortal given;
Who in pure Unity profoundly sways
Eternally alike all things in earth and heaven.

[Alfred Young CSP]
[This is a sort of anthem for the Missionary Society of St. Paul. I couldn't find the text online! Wow. Google isn't omniscient ... :)]
