Order of Saint Augustine

"Anima una et cor unum in Deum!" (Regula)

Thought of Saint Augustine
In the material world, a foot is one thing, a ladder is another and wings still another. In the interior world, however, feet, ladders, and wings are the affections of a good will, with them, we walk, we climb, and we fly.
(En. in ps. 38, 2)
Man was not created as an irrational animal bent toward the earth but, erect in stature, a reminder to look above.
(De Civ. Dei XXII, 24, 4)
Habits support the intelligence just as a way of living leads to a way of life.
(In Io. Ev. XVIII, 7)

The Augustinians made a presentation on the Feast of Saint Augustine to the United Nations DPI/NGO conference. Augustinians and their co-workers, who were attending the Conference on the Redevelopment of the Millenium Goals and the Eradication of Poverty, came from all of the continents. On behalf of the Order they are presenting projects of the Order connected with Nigeria, Peru, Kenya, Philippines and Canada as indicative of the works of the Order internationally. Further they will be in touch with Justice and Peace Directors on how to liaise with Fr Emeka Obiezu on human rights reviews as part of the new status of the Order at the UN.
