Controversy on St. Augustine
Here is an article on a friend's blog about St. Augustine. I find it amusing that a small controversy stirred up around it. Only proving to me that protestants are indeed trying to hijack St. Augustine. Many try to say that Sl. Augustine was not Catholic nor supported the Catholic Church. The facts that St. Augustine was a priest and bishop of the Church, that his great works "Confession" and "City of God" are Catholic apologetic works through and through, that St. Augustine supported the magesterium and the papacy, seem to escape them time and time again. St. Augustine was a passionate supporter of the Church founded by Christ on the Rock, Peter. No matter how protestants try to rationalize what he said, they cannot seriously prove that St. Augustine was anything but Catholic.
