St. Austin Is St. Augustine

Augustine are one in the same person. St.
Augustine was born and named Austin by his parents
and during his early priesthood he was known as Austin.
St. Augustine's trip to bring Christianity to England

St. Austin Brings Christianity to
Saint Austin, along with forty monks went to England
to bring the teachings of Christianity and convert the
pagans of England. They were driven from the town by
the heathens but St. Austin performed a miracle which
helped convert the English people to Christianity.
Saint Austin was eventually buried at Canterbury where
he worshipped and ruled. It is said that miracles continued
there, even after his death. The Christians of England
continue to pray to St. Austin who brought Christianity
to their land. Many Christians in England wear a Saint
Austin pendant or a Saint Austin necklace to honor the
saint who brought them the way of Jesus
St. Austin Still Honored by Christians
Saint Austin interpreted much of the New Testament scripture
and the Mass that is still celebrated today in the Catholic
Church. He is considered by many Christians and clergy
to be a theological genius. The hundreds of writing
of St. Austin continue to be studied by modern day Catholics.
Many Catholics wear a Saint Austin pendant as they recite
this St. Austin Prayer:
Lord Jesus, let me know myself and know you and desire
nothing save only you. Let me hate myself and love you.
Let me humble myself and exalt you. Let me think nothing
except you. Let me die to myself and live in you. Let
me accept whatever happens as from you. Let me banish
myself and follow you, and ever desire to follow you.
Let me fly from myself and take refuge in you, that
I may deserve to be defended by you. Let me fear for
myself, let me fear you, and let me be among those who
are chosen by you. Let me be willing to obey for the
sake of you. Let me cling to nothing save only to you,
and let me be poor because of you. Look upon me, that
I may love you. Call me that I may see you, and for
ever enjoy you. Amen.
