St. Augustine of Hippo Comments

St. Augustine of Hippo is the patron of brewers because of his conversion from a former life of loose living, which included parties, entertainment, and worldly ambitions. His complete turnaround and conversion has been an inspiration to many who struggle with a particular vice or habit they long to break. This famous son of St. Monica was born in Africa and spent many years of his life in wicked living and in false beliefs. Though he ... Continue Reading

    St.Augustine Please Pray for me to Have the Lord's Guidance and Provisional Blessing in all that I am to do now. Whether to stay where I am or to go where the Lord desires me to. Please pray for my discernment and wisdom! Thank You and God Bless all of you!

    St. Augustine, I love the words you had on the wall of your room,"lord too late have i loved you". And "here we do not speak evil of anyone". Dear beloved saint, inspire me to follow your example, not to delay loving the Lord from day to day. Besides, help my family to love each other despite being insulted ever so often by snide comments from my other siblings. Are we meant to live and tolerate this? Then, St. Augustine, come to our aid with your wonderful intercession, prayers and pleadings. May my family know Christ more intimately, love Christ more dearly and follow Him more closely, I ask that we keep our focus on Christ, live Christ-centred lives. I like your serenity prayer too. "lord give me the courage to change the things I can, the serenity to accept the things I cannot change and the wisdom to know the difference". St. Monica and St. Augustine pray for my family.

    Please pray for me to the Lord our God that my studies may be fruitful that the hard works of my parents may be worth it. Please help me that in my studies I will understand all the lessons and that I will be the friends for everyone. That my family will be blessed with a harmonious and happy life with you, with God.
    All glory and honors is your almighty father forever and ever amen.

    In reply to cazmac65: Nobody really knows the color of St. Augustin's skin but he was most likely black because St. monica was african. The race of his father is unknown. Hope that helps. :)

    My dad isn't catholic and just a few days ago he said he never will be Catholic and he wants me to respect that. how am I supposed to be able to respect that I am with him every other weekend wich means I don't go to mass every other Sunday, wich is a grave sin. my mom just tells me to pray to St. Monica and St. Augustine. I've been praying for him for about a year now and I feel like it's pointless because he still refuses to go to mass. I do things like asking him to help me on a saint project, pray with me before meals... stuff like that.

    I became Catholic 4 years ago this Easter.
    Converting, literally saved my life & my wretched soul.
    IT'S THE BEST THING I'VE EVER DONE IN MY LIFE !
    I was confirmed & baptised on Easter 4 years ago.
    My confirmation name: "Augustine"....."very appropriate" for me.
