St. Augustine

Augustine was born to a pagan father and a Christian mother. Sadly, he followed more in his father’s ways than his mother’s and became a real troublemaker, even teaching pagan beliefs to others. Eventually his mother’s prayers won his conversion. In his immense gratitude for knowing the truth, loving God and loving his Catholic faith, he gave his whole life to God as a priest and later a bishop. St. Augustine wrote so well about God that he was named a Doctor of the Church.
