Saint Augustine was one of the wisest persons in the Catholic Church. His teachings and writings are still studied to this day.
The experience of his life, especially his conversion, serves as a great example of our journey to God as Christians. One of his speeches, which is still quoted today, is: “You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you.”
This is a very difficult thought for children to understand, and maybe it does not apply to their young age. Therefore, we can take note of some teachings from Saint Augustine’s life as they are presented in the video.
Augustine, Saint Monica’s son, did not always feel sympathetic towards the Christian faith, so much so that he turned away from God. His mother Monica kept worrying and praying for him. When Augustine met with Bishop Ambrose and he spoke with him about the Christian religion, and after plenty of discussions, Augustine converted to Christianity, he became a priest and he started to teach and preach until his death.
