Saint of the Day

St. Augustine (354-430)
Raised a Christian, Augustine lost his faith and led a wild life. After living with a woman for many years, having a son, and dabbling in heresy, he was converted by the prayers of his mother and help from St. Ambrose. He sold his property, gave the proceeds to the poor, and founded a monastery. He became a monk, priest, preacher, bishop, and Doctor of the Church.

Reflections from the Saints

Our hearts were made for You, O Lord, and they are restless until they rest in you.
