Why Augustine DeCarthage?
Well, before he was St. Augustine, Doctor of the Church
before he was Bishop of Hippo Regius
before all that, he lived in Carthage.
And he loved the ladies.
No, that's not really a fresco of Augustine.
Augustine is a great example of how a flawed, sinful human being can become a follower of Christ and a devoted servant of God. But as I write this blog, I'm more in Carthage mode than Hippo mode.
