Year 5: St Augustine

Saint Augustine was the son of Saint Monica and born in the region of what is Algeria today. He was brought up a Christian by his mother and father; however, this did not stop him from living a loose life of sin and wild parties.

Through the preaching of Saint Ambrose and the prayers of his mother, Augustine finally found the light and changed his ways. He shouted to the skies, asking God for forgiveness and with that, he was was guided to read The Letters of Saint Paul where he put away all impurities and lived by imitating Jesus.

Later in his life, he became a Priest, a Bishop and a well known Catholic writer. Up until his death, he remained a devout Christian, spending much of his time helping the poor and less fortunate.
