Title: CATHOLIC HEROES OF THE FAITH: THE STORY OF SAINT AUGUSTINE
Description:
Bright young Augustine thinks his mother's religion is foolishness. Convinced that his superior intellect will guide him, he sneaks away from home and ventures to a new way of life in the city of Rome. Soon Augustine finds himself in an important position as "The Voice of the Emperor," with the life of luxury he's always wanted. When the emperor decides to take over the Christian basilica, Augustine prepares to give the speech of a lifetime, one that will show Christianity's rising influence. With his devout mother and the unwavering Bishop Ambrose on one side and the empire's loyal soldiers on the other, Augustine must choose whom he will serve. A moving and powerful presentation of the story of two of the most revered Doctors of the Church: Saint Augustine and Saint Ambrose and the powerful intercession of a devoted mother, Saint Monica.
