Thought of Saint Augustine
You made us for yourself, oh Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you.
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)
Necessity is the mother of all human actions.
(En. in ps. 83, 8)

In Santiago, Chile, from 21 to 25 September of 2015, the friars of the Province of Chile celebrated their Ordinary Provincial Chapter in the Convento Nuestra Señora de Gracia. At the opening ceremony of the Chapter, the document from the Prior General, Fr. Alejandro Moral Antón, appointing Fr. Patricio Villalba, the Assistant General for Latin America, as the President of the Chapter was read. After having read the names of those who were to take part in the Chapter, the members proceeded to the election of the various officials of the Chapter.

During the opening celebration of the Eucharist, presided over by Fr. Patricio Villalba, the re- election of Fr. Enrique Catalan as Prior Provincial was confirmed.
