Augustine did not find that he could provide answers to all the questions that troubled him while at Thagaste. In 391, on a visit to Hippo Regius, he was forcibly ordained presbyter for a small Catholic congregation. ‘Vocation’ charts Augustine's time at the Hippo house and how his views were shaped by the people he met there. The Hippo house proved to be a magnet for some of the most unfortunate casualties of life. People who became monks or nuns but who left the monastery were a deep disappointment to him. Augustine regarded penitence of heart as part of the regular pattern of all authentic spiritual life. Discipline became a strong force in his life at this point.
