Saint Augustine


Saint Augustine is known for his conversion from a selfish, worldly lifestyle to become a Doctor of the Church. Just like us, he wasn’t able to do it alone. He needed the intercessions of his mother, Monica, and the influence of Bishop Ambrose of Milan to repent and find a new way of life. He is a great example of how our gifts can be used for good once we have found recovery and dedicate ourselves to God, one day at a time.
