Augustine was born in Africa in the year 354. As a young man, he began living a sinful life, but his mother, Monica, prayed that her son might become a Christian. After many years of persistent prayer, her son finally converted. Later, Augustine was ordained a priest, and in the year 395 he was consecrated to serve as the bishop of Hippo.
Augustine wrote hundreds of books and letters defending the Catholic Faith. His writings remain influential to this day and have brought many people to Christ. Reading this story can encourage us to follow in the footsteps of St. Augustine, who repented from sin and brought other people to God through his own conversion.
