Fr. Meconi, S.J.
One of the chapters on memory even matches up with contemporary cognitive neuroscience.
One muse... The barbarians who stormed Rome, and terrified St Augustine, used the Germanic word 'God', when the Greeks and the Latins used the word 'Devus'. Strange as it sounds, the word 'God' is actually alien to St Augustine! So St Augustine would be amused that his works are translated with that foreign word uttered by those barbarians storming the forum and carrying off the girls!
He'll be smiling down, I am sure.
So great was his faith, Catholic, Anglican, and Eastern Orthodox churches, consider him a saint. The Protestant Church considers him to be one of the fathers of the Protestant Reformation.
