about this story

St. Augustine of Hippo
St. Augustine was born on 354 AD in the Roman province of Africa. His mother Monica was a devout Christian, and his father Patricius was a pagan. He abandoned christianity first before he became the St. Augustine of Hippo. That is when he started convincing people to believe Jesus and live for the city of God. After the death of his son who had also given up his life to Jesus, Augustine sold his inheritance and donated all of them to the poor. Saint Augustine formed a new Ancient Faith, according to his contemporary, Saint Jerome. Manichaeism and afterwards Neoplatonism were influential in his boyhood. Saint Augustine's methodology towards philosophy and theology developed after his baptism and commitment to Christianity in 386 B.C.

Experience in life
I’ve known God since I was a child because my grandparents are both Catholic who raised me.I became aware of the faith early because my grandparents had a group that every Sunday they had a household where they gathered to pray to the Lord. But as I got older, I gradually drifted away from God because I always asked why I was the only one here in our area who always had no mom and dad. I always ask him why my life is like this, which is not happy and always has problems. Until I met someone who was the way for me to turn to God. He always tells me what the best thing is to do, especially the constant prayer to the Lord. I am so thankful to God that he has given me someone who can change my point of view and who can bring me back to him. I have no regrets about what happened because since I met him I have become calmer and my communication with the Lord has been continuous.
