Augustine was born in 354 A.D. in North Africa. As a young man, he loved partying and spending his money. However, through prayer, reflection and study, Augustine began to realize his sins; he wrote to God: “Restless is our heart until it rests in you.” He became a priest and bishop, and he shared his conversion in Confessions, his autobiography. Augustine was made a Doctor of the Church for his brilliant writings.
