While living in Milan he came under the influence of Saint Ambrose and was baptized in 387. He became a priest in 391, a bishop four years later and produced an extraordinary body of writings including the Confessions and the City of God generally considered foundational in the history of Christian thought. Best known for his brilliant intellect, Augustine was also blessed with mystical insight into the Christian mysteries.&lt;br /&gt;<br />&lt;br /&gt;<br />&lt;br /&gt;<br />Encounter Christ, the Eternal Word&lt;br /&gt;<br />&lt;br /&gt;<br />Saint Augustine shows us Christ but always in ways that are new, fresh and unexpected. If you see love, you see the Trinity, he tells us, and Christ was born so we may be born anew. Augustine weaves a rich tapestry of Christian thought, incorporating the Church, the sacraments, the Blessed Mother and above all the Trinity but never loses sight of Love, the Fullness and the End divine Love manifested in Jesus Christ, the Eternal Word made flesh for our salvation. Here, then, is a 15-day journey into the very heart of Christian faith.&lt;br /&gt;<br />show more
