Thought of Saint Augustine
Mary believed, and what she believed was realized in her. Let us also believe, so that what she realized is also beneficial to us.
There is an origin and source of virtue. There is a root of wisdom. And, there is, so to speak, a region of changeless truth. If the soul leaves this region, it lives in darkness but, when it approaches this region, it is enlightened.
(En. in ps. 58, S 1, 18)
Great misery is the proud man, but greater mercy is the humble God.
(De cat. rud. IV, 8)

Caravaggio on Augustine


United Kingdom
A new discovery of an old work of art.

Art experts have determined that a painting of Saint Augustine recently found in a private collection in Britain is actually a work of the famous artist Caravaggio. The painting is a rediscovery from the collection of the artist’s patrons, Cardinal Benedetto Giustiniani and his brother Marchese Vincenzo. A label tucked in the back of the stretcher revealed the name of the heir to the collection in the nineteenth century.

The painting has been requested for the exhibition Roma al tempo di Caravaggio at Palazzo Venezia, Rome, from November 10, 2011 to February 5, 2012.
