Aurelius Augustinus Hipponensis in Latin also called Augustine was born on  13 November,354  in Tagaste, a Roman province of Numidia to St. Monica and Patricius.

St. Augustine had a private life before a religious call with Carthage and had a son called Adeodatus meaning “Gift from God” and later left his previous life to become a Catholic priest.

He was inspired to become a Christian after reading the life of Anthony of the Desert. He later wrote a book called Confessions, a classic of Christian theology which is a work of outpouring of thanksgiving and penitence. In 391, Augustine has ordained a priest in Hippo Regius.

He was deeply interested in teaching the different scriptures in the Bible. He became a famous preacher. He preached around 6,000 to 10,000 sermons throughout his life.

In 395, he became the coadjutor Bishop of Hippo and later became full Bishop and was named as “Augustine of Hippo”. He held this position until his death on August 28,430.

Some of his works include “The City of God”, which narrates the biblical story of humankind from Genesis to the Last Judgment, Ecractationes meaning Reconsiderations is a book about St. Augustine’s career, “De doctrina Christiana” is an interpretation of Scripture which discusses Augustine’s theory of “signs” and how language represents reality.

 “Trinity” is the book that represents the Threeness of God: The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, similar to triples in the human soul and quotes the importance of food for meditation and deep reason for optimism for the ultimate human condition.

St. Augustine is admired and remembered for his powerful intellect and for being a stirring orator.

St. Augustine Prayer

Breathe in me O Holy Spirit,
that my thoughts may all be holy.

Act in me O Holy Spirit,
that my work, too, may be holy.

Draw my heart O Holy Spirit,
that I love but what is holy.

Strengthen me O Holy Spirit,
to defend all that is holy.

Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit,
that I always may be holy. Amen.

Prayer to St. Augustine By Pope John Paul II

O great Augustine, our father and teacher,
who knows the shining paths of God
and also the crooked paths of men,
we admire the marvels that divine Grace
has worked in you,
making you a passionate witness
to truth and goodness
at the service of your neighbour.

At the start of a new millennium marked by
the Cross of Christ,
teach us to read history
in the light of divine Providence,
which guides events to the
final encounter with the Father.
Guide us towards goals of peace,
kindling in our hearts
your own desire for the values
upon which we,
with the strength that comes from God,
can build the “city of Man”.

May the profound teaching that you drew,
with loving and patient study,
from the ever-living sources of Scripture
enlighten all who are tempted today
by alienating mirages.
May you obtain for them the courage
to set out on the way
towards that “inner man” in whom the One,
who alone can restore peace
to our restless hearts, awaits.

So many of our contemporaries seem to have
lost the hope of reaching,
amidst the many conflicting ideologies,
the truth that they continue to yearn for
in depths of their hearts.
Teach them never to give up their quest
in the certainty that,
in the end, their efforts will be rewarded
by the fulfilling encounter
with that, supreme Truth, who is the Source
of every created truth.

Lastly, O St Augustine,
communicate to us too a spark
of that burning love for the Church,
the Catholic mother of the Saints,
which sustained and gave life
to the efforts of your own long ministry.
Enable us, as we walk together under
the guidance of our legitimate Pastors,
to reach the glory of the heavenly Homeland
where, with all the Blesseds,
we can join in singing
the new and eternal Alleluia.
Amen.
