August 28: Feast of St. Augustine of Hippo
On August 28, Western Christianity celebrates the feast of Augustine of Hippo, patron saint of brewers, printers, and theologians. (In Eastern Christianity, they celebrate June 15.)
Augustine was a teacher, and theologian in the 4th and 5th centuries, famous for his writings: Confessions of St. Augustine, City of God, and On Christian Doctrine. For many years he was the bishop of Hippo, in modern day Algeria.
““You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.”
