Feast Day -- August 28
Saint Augustine was the son of a Christian mother and a pagan father. His mother wanted him to be baptized but he studied many other ideas before he became a Christian. He became a monk and a priest and later was the bishop of Hippo, a city near his hometown in North Africa. Saint Augustine was a great teacher and writer. Augustine's mother, Monica, is also a saint.
Patron of brewers, printers, and theologians. Saint Augustine is said to have been converted to Christianity in a garden under a fig tree.
You have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you. (Saint Augustine's prayer.)
