St. Augustine Novena

Saint Augustine NovenaSt. Augustine is one of the greatest defenders of the Catholic faith and the patron saint of searchers. At the end of nine days of prayer, we hope to find the God that saved Saint Augustine waiting to deliver us from temporal concerns through his kind intercession.

You will be inspired by reflecting on the life of Saint Augustine and his transformation from a life of sin and iniquity to become one of the greatest saints the church has ever known.

About St. Augustine

St. Augustine was born in Africa to Saint Monica and spent the early part of his life living in sin and depravity. Though he was brought up as a Christian, he abandoned Christianity in favor of the loose morals espoused by a religious group called the Manicheans. During St. Augustine’s dark days, his mother Saint Monica incessantly prayed for his conversion back into the fold of God’s Grace, aided also by prayers of the Bishop of Milan, St. Ambrose.

A highly intelligent man, even then St. Augustine used to compare his life to Christian morals but was not confident he would be able to lead a pure life. After hearing of two simple men being converted, he decried the cowardice that prevented a learned person like him from pursuing the Kingdom of God. He believed that he heard God’s command when he heard a child singing “Take up and read”, and in compliance read the first passage of the Letters of Saint Paul which advised people to put away all impurity and to live in imitation of Jesus.

He was baptized at Easter on 387 A.D. and went on to become one of the most prominent defenders of the faith. At his conversion, he sold his possessions and lived a life of poverty, service to the poor and prayer until the end of his life. He founded the Order of Saint Augustine, who continued his early work to educate the faithful. His search for truth resulted in his clear explanations of Roman Catholic beliefs, including theological writings on creation, original sin, devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, and biblical interpretation.

St. Augustine is revered as the Patron Saint of searchers to commemorate his search for truth and the One True God.

  25. St. Augustine; I pray this novena to ask your intercession for my husband. He has claimed to be atheist for 3 years now and shuns away any talk or belief of God. I ask you St. Augustine to work a miracle with my husband. Help him to be filled with the Holy Spirit and come back to having a strong faith life with God. He used to read the Bible daily and attend mass with me even though he wasn’t Catholic. But after we got our marriage convalidated in the Catholic Church he became very angry and bitter and has claimed God does not exists. I do not understand why – he won’t tell me because he “doesn’t want to ruin my faith”. He allows me to raise our children Catholic and all of our friends and family say that he isn’t really atheist, but only that he is very angry with God right now. He had a very hard upbringing and I know he felts a lot of anger and resentment towards his mentally ill mother and most of his extended family who never helped him. Please St. Augustine help him to find closure and peace somehow with his past and the people he angry towards help him forgive; especially his mother.

    • I have seen your posts the past few days. Please search for a women’s or families shelter to leave the home. If your husband is physically abusive you must leave. We must cooperate with grace, and God does not want you to stay with a man who is abusive. You have value and he is not honoring you or himself. If he is abusive, you do not have a true marriage. Please know you cannot fix him. Only he can do it, with God’s help, when he submits his free will to change his behavior. God must honor his free will to choose. I pray you will find a family member, friend, or shelter to go to. Claim the promise of Isaiah 41:10, “Fear not, I am with you. Be not dismayed, I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you, and uphold you with my right hand of justice.” Pray for God to provide a way out for you. God parted the Red Sea and he will make a path for you, but you must do your part and keep moving forward in a constructive way to take care of yourself and your children. Take action every day and Trust in Jesus to lead you.

      • Hi Jenny, I completely agree with your post. This woman really does need help.

        CMK you are not alone and you really need help. What he is doing is not OK and it is not a norm. It is wrong and you and your children need shelter. I would strongly look into seeking a domestic violence shelter where they can take care of you and protect you. I am praying for you. I wish I could help you more but please know this…people like this don’t change overnight. He needs serious help and anger management. Let the shelter help you and they can even help him with counseling and treatment centers. You are loved by God and creation is not complete without you. Be strong for you and your kids and go go go. Your freedom is at the door and you need to get away from him. May the Lord bless and protect you!

  84. St Augustine patron saint of searching for the truth. I am searching for answers. I have been betrayed by my husband. We will soon be divorced and I still want answers. Whether what really happened comes from him, or the person he was unfaithful with. Or it may come from others that know. I know something happened. I want to know St Augustine. Please. I want to be free from this secret and live to be the best mother to my children. St Augustine pray that they come forth so that I may go on. Amen.
