Thought of Saint Augustine
So great is the power of the good that even evil doers seek it.
(Sermo 29, 1)
Past and present I find in all movement of things; but it is not so in the Truth that remains forever; I only find the present in her, and this is incorruptible; this cannot be said of creatures.
(In Io. Ev. XXXVIII, 10)
We dwell in the Lord when we are his body and he dwells in us when we are his temple.

The Augustinian International Commission on Initial Formation met at the Curia in Rome on March 10-11, 2014. The members of the commission are: Joseph Farrell (Vic Gen. Pres. VIL), John Flynn (Sec Gen. VIL), Alexander Longs (Mag. Prof. S. Monica NIG), Marco Antonio Coquis Ortiz (PER), Oscar Jimènez Portes (ANT), Jose Seidel (CAE), Rastislav Stuller (ITA) Dieudonné Kumboko Mbolitini (CON). The agenda included: a review of the function and organization of the commission and a review of the decisions of the Ordinary General Chapter of 2013, a discussion of a part of an interview with Pope Francis and the male major religious superiors entitled “Formation, a work of art, not a police action”, the creation of an outline of a plan for the next six years which will be presented for discussion at the meeting of Major Superiors in June 2014. A large portion of the meeting was dedicated to the review and reformulation of the Ratio Institutionis. It was a work which the former commission began by creating a supplement for the Ratio after the meeting of Formators in Cascia in 2011. The next meeting of the commission will take place in Chile, in October 2014.
