Happy Birthday St. Augustine!

Today is the birthday of St. Augustine of Hippo (354).  We actually know his birthday because he tells us in one of his Cassiciacum dialogues (De beata vita 6).

It is therefore also the feast of all the saints of the Augustinian order.

I have a 1st class relic of St. Augustine, but today here is my relic of his mother, which seems appropriate.

    At Mass this AM in a Cistercian Abbey, they celebrated All Saints Day for all those following the Rule of St. Benedict. Interesting, because Augustinians have their own rule, from St. Augustine.
