Today we commemorate Augustine of Hippo, Pastor and Theologian. Numbered amongst the greatest of the Latin Church Fathers, Augustine’s early life was marked by participation in the moral laxity of his times. Converted to Christianity, in no small part due to the devotion of his mother and the preaching of Ambrose, bishop of Milan, Augustine became a staunch defender of the orthodox Christian faith. Augustine’s writings are still widely read and treasured by the Church.
