Saint Augustine of Hippo
Saint Augustine
Augustine was born in North Africa in 354 and his mother was a Christian. After trying other religions Augustine returned to Christ through reading in a Milan garden the letters of St Paul. He was baptized when he was 33. He was ordained 4 years later in 391. He became bishop of Hippo (now Annaba, Algeria) in 395, an office he held until his death in 430.

The place of prominence held by Augustine among the Fathers and Doctors of the Church is comparable to that of St. Paul. Augustine's best-known work is his autobiographical Confessions (circa 400), exposing his early life and conversion. The prayers he wrote in it revealed his own experiences of God:

Thou didst call and cry and burst my deafness. Thou hast touched me and I burned for thy peace. Thou hast made us for Thyself and our hearts are restless until they find rest in Thee.
