St. Augustine

Yesterday was the feast of St. Monica (or Monnica) and today the feast of her son St. Augustine. Fr. Alexander Lucie-Smith has a nice article on the vision at Ostia and has the kindness to point readers to my 2010 post on the subject. The Vision -- which is a joint religious experience between Augustine and his mother -- is one of the more interesting religious experiences in history, and an entire theology of heaven packed into one small package. Father Zuhlsdorf has a good re-post on why St. Monica is buried in Rome.
