Saint of the Day - August 28, 2011


St. Augustine (354-430)

 Raised a Christian, Augustine lost his faith and led a wild life. After living with a woman for many years, having a son, and dabbling in heresy, he was converted by the prayers of his mother and help from St. Ambrose. He sold his property, gave the proceeds to the poor, and founded a monastery. He became a monk, priest, preacher, bishop, and Doctor of the Church.
