Martyrdom of St. John the Baptist

St. Augustine

AugustineSt. Augustine exercised a great influence not only on the early church, but on the development of church theology down through the centuries.

He is pictured by Fra Angelico at the moment of his remorseful conversion back to the faith of his youth. 

His thinking in three was instrumental in beginning modern theological discourse about the Trinity, an interior spirituality and personal relationship with God and Jesus Christ. 

He once remarked that God in his omnipotence could not give more, in His wisdom he knew not how to give more, in His riches He had not more to give, than the Eucharist.

Our modern spirituality can prosper if we get back to basics, especially a reverence and love for the Eucharist.
