This 3 1/2″ tall St. Augustine of Hippo peg saint is dressed in purple bishop’s robes and holds a bishop’s crozier in his left hand. His right hand holds a book, representing the great works he wrote for the Catholic church. On his back is a quote, “…Our heart is restless until is rests in You.”
St. Augustine, son of St. Monica, converted from a life of sin and partying to become a Catholic. He later became a priest, a bishop and a famous Catholic writer. He was the founder of religious priests and became one of the greatest saints that ever lived! His complete conversion has made him an inspiration to many. He practiced poverty and supported the poor. Patron saint of brewers. Feast day: August 28.
