Our Saint of the Week
 

AUGUST 28—AUGUSTINE OF HIPPO (354-430) was born in North Africa and lived a dissolute life that eventually brought him to Milan.  There at age 32, Augustine was moved to conversion by the preaching of St. Ambrose and St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans.  He was baptized in 386 and later ordained a priest.  In 395 Augustine was elected bishop of Hippo, where he combated heresies of the Manichees, the Donatists, and Pelagius.    Augustine wrote many great works, including his Confessions and City of God.  Over 500 of his homilies are still in circulation.  Augustine is one of the four great doctors of the Latin Church, and is called the “Doctor of Grace”.
