Saint Augustine was the first Catholic Saint I remember reading (his Confessions) and he surprised me. The ex-profligate and passionate convert was not what I had expected. I don't know what I had expected, probably something dull and stiffly pious, which Augustine ain't.
So, a day late (and a drachma short, I'm sure) but many thanks. Saint Augustine, pray for us.
Today is actually the feast of the Martyrdom of St. John the Baptist.
