Saints have always been associated with heroes and heroines fighting for their faith. Their stories provide the inspiration for us to live virtuous and holy lives.

Most saints were good and righteous during their lives, but there were some serious sinners out there before they found the light and converted.

In the early years of the Church and throughout the Middle Ages, writers were all too eager to be perfectly candid in regards to saints who were far from saintly in their youth.

The following five saints offer hope in the belief that we have the potential to change our lives around. Who knows, maybe you can be a saint someday too?

1) St. Augustine

St. Augustine might be one of the most famous of saints with a sinful past. Considering that his mother (St. Monica) was a devout Christian, this seems rather surprising.
