Bishop, Confessor and Doctor.

He was born in Thagaste, Africa. His powerful intelligence lost in the study of philosophy and sects, and his fiery heart dominated by the passions of youth, he was drawn to the knowledge and love of God by the prayers of his mother, Saint Monica.

Created Bishop of Hipona, he began religious life at home with other clergy, from where the Order of Saint Augustine originated.

His intelligence, enlightened by faith, gave off marvelous gleams in his numerous writings, which make him one of the highest peaks of genius and wisdom; his heart, burned with the love of God, places him among the most distinguished Saints of the Catholic Church.

V: Saint Augustine.
A: Pray for us.
