St. Augustine

The Thoughtful St. Augustine

Wearing a St. Augustine medal is a surefire constant reminder of a unique saint, philosopher, and leader of the early church.  Certainly we think of his human aspect and his teaching style as we ponder his quote “give me chastity, but not yet.” 

St. Augustine’s early life in Africa was marked as a rowdy gang member devoted to the more base and earthy pleasures of mortal man.  As a young adult, St. Augustine began to turn from that rowdy, raw life style as evidenced by St. Augustine’s quote about his life “absurd if innocent; preposterous, if pure – the greatest shame of all was, to feel ashamed.”

Writings of St. Augustine

St. Augustine jewelry such as a cross, a St. Augustine charm or a St Augustine medal is a proper reminder of our own individual free will and its dependence upon God’s grace, as expressed in St. Augustine’s writings.  He pointed out to the people of the early church that although each is given free will, such can only result in a productive life if the grace of God is sought and is bestowed.

St Augustine
’s writings were some of the first to establish the concept of two wills, “…one old one new, one of the spirit and one of the flesh fought angrily together and my soul was on the rack.”

St. Augustine Philosopher

St. Augustine philosopher established the concept of self-examination in respect to the teachings of Jesus and with regard to the expectations of God the Maker.  He wrote of his anguish wherein “the new will, the will of the spirit was twisting me back to myself… was setting me before my own face, that I might see how foul I was, how distorted and filthy, how soiled an ulcered.”
St. Augustine is honored and widely read to this current day because of his brilliant mind, his thoughts, and his teachings expressed in a manner and text the ordinary faithful can easily understand.
