With his devout mother and the unwavering Bishop Ambrose on one side and the empire’s loyal soldiers on the other, Augustine must choose whom he will serve.
For Youth / Teens, WATCH: YDisciple: Hot Topics Series: Session 6: Christian Dating ~ It would seem that the popular view of dating today has nothing to do with preparing for the time-honored traditional vows of marriage: "for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health..." In fact, it is usually a better preparation for divorce than for a lifelong, joy-filled marriage. Popular culture needs to rediscover principles of healthy dating based upon the dignity of the human person and the vocation to love.
