About this Episode

Book 9 follows St. Augustine’s reception into the Church. While finally receiving the sacraments brings forth great joy, conversion requires sacrifice. St. Augustine’s new life demands his resignation from his position teaching rhetoric. This isn’t the only trial St. Augustine faces in Book 9. We prepare for the death of his mother, St. Monica. Fr. Gregory Pine and Fr. Jacob-Bertrand Janczyk remind us to lean on the support we have in the Church as we face our day-to-day conversions.
