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.

    I'm doing a report on St. Augustine too!!! But I don't know when he was born, died or what he did to become a saint. Other than that this site is great!

    For all of those interested in reading about St. Augustine, I suggest you strongly pursue this. I have found his writings to be truly refreshing and challenging. The writing I would start on is his "Confessions". It can be difficult to read at times, but believe me, it is well worth it. He is truly enlightened and inspired by the Holy Spirit.
