Happy belated feast day of St. Augustine (it was yesterday)! And the day before was the fest of his mother, St. Monica. St. Augustine could be one of the patrons of this blog because  Sebastian mentions him  in Brideshead Revisited. Sebastian uses a modified quote from Augustine’s Confessions saying at one point, “God, make me good – but not yet.” St. Augustine had a pretty wild life before answering the call of God, in many respects just like Sebastian.


Check out this cool medal that incorporates both St. Monica and St. Augustine! I particularly like the shape of this one. I wish it came in gold. . .
