This is definitely NOT scriptural. We are NOT rewarded in the same way. The Lord Himself told His apostles when they asked to receive the seats at His right hand that such is reserved for those for whom it is reserved. There are many passages in the epistles as well that indicate our rewards will definitely not be the same.
I agree.

...Augustine is not a saint in the Orthodox Church (yet).

Quote
Blessed Augustine, Bishop of Hippo - commemorated on June 15/28.

Seems pretty conclusive to me.
;D ;D ;D ;) :-*

Was looking for Photius on Augustine quotes and found... well, this link. You'll love this headline... I won't spoil the surprise.

But the fact that a city in Florida is name "St. Augustine" does not prove that the Orthodox venerate him as a saint.  Besides, the saint being glorified in this dedication is St. Photius, not St. Augustine.

I just found the juxtaposition amusing, nothing deeper than that...
