“These then, whom Herod’s cruelty tore as sucklings from their mothers’ bosom, are justly hailed as ‘infant martyr flowers’; they were the Church’s first blossoms, matured by the frost of persecution during the cold winter of unbelief.” (St. Augustine of Hippo, Bishop, Confessor and Doctor of Grace)
August 28 is the Memorial of St. Augustine of Hippo (A.D. 354 – 430)
