Do you know of a saint who used to be a partier? One is St.Augustine of Hippo. He is veiwed as one of the most important Church Doctors. He lived from 354-430 A.D.

When he was young, he partied and lived a dark life of sin. His mother, Saint Monica, prayed and prayed for his conversion into Catholicsm. While St.Ambrose preached to Augustine telling him Christianity is the one true religion. He converted when a child came and said,”Take up and read” He picked up the Letters of Saint Paul. It said,”Put away impurtiy and live in imitation of Jesus.”

After that, he was baptized and became a priest, a bishop, also a Catholic writer. St.Augustine became a devout cathoilc, who was charitable,and he practiced poverty. His devout life towards the end made up for all the bad he did in the beginning of his life.

St. Augustine was the Bishop of Hippo, Africa. He was so influential to the people of Hippo. People said,”They could see St.Paul through Augustine’s eyes.” He preached and prayed with great passion. St Augustine said,”God loves each of us like there’s only one of us.”

His life is incredible because at the beginning he chose sin, then he converted and became one of the greatest saints ever! His feast day is August 28. He is the patron saint of brewers, printers, theologians, people with sore eyes, and cities and dioceses.
