About this Episode

It is finally conversion day! After providing further philosophical proofs against the Manichaeans, St. Augustine reaches the point of conversion. Not only does St. Augustine describe the moment in which the Holy Spirit overwhelms him, but he also shares how those closest to him react upon learning of his conversion. This includes a description of the joy and relief of St. Monica. Fr. Gregory Pine and Fr. Jacob-Bertrand Janczyk reflect on these reactions and on the moment of St. Augustine’s conversion. Today’s readings are Book 8, Chapters 10-12.
