" St. Augustine of Hippo converted from a former life of loose living, which included parties, entertainment, and worldly ambitions. 

His complete turnaround and conversion has been an inspiration to many who struggle with a particular vice or habit they long to break.This famous son of St. Monica was born in Africa and spent many years of his life in wicked living and in false beliefs.
