Thought of Saint Augustine
Man himself, so much admired, is a great mystery.
(Sermo 126, 4)
Do not despair, you who are blind. Come close to him, and you will be healed. You who are blind, come close to him and you will be illuminated.
Let us love the Lord our God, let us love the Church. He, like a father; she, like a mother. He, like a master; she, like a servant. For we are the children of this very servant.

Meeting of Augustinian Bishops


The Order of St. Augustine celebrated the concluding days of the year dedicated to Consecrated Life with a gathering of 13 of our 20 Augustinian brothers who have been called to serve the Church as bishops. The encounter was held on February 1-3, 2016 in Rome. At the moment the invitations were sent, positive responses came back with notes of thanks and enthusiastic expectations for the chance to meet , to listen to each other, and to share our Augustinian fraternity. Thanks to the cooperative work of many friars, these expectations were met and exceeded. Each participating bishop was given the opportunity to present the current situation of his particular ministry which sparked some lively questions and discussions. On February 2, everyone was invited to participate with Pope Francis in the Mass in St. Peter Basilica to officially close the Year of Consecrated Life. The final portion of the encounter was dedicated to exploring possible ways of building relationships and maintaining mutual support between the Order and our brothers called by the Church to serve in the episcopacy. In the final evaluation of the encounter it was agreed that this was a valuable encounter and the participants look forward to other opportunities to share our Augustinian Fraternity with each other.
