Thought of Saint Augustine
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.
If you elevate yourself, God distances himself from you. If you humble yourself, he leans towards you.
God became a man so that by following a man, which you can do, you will reach God, which you could not do.

Meeting of the Order’s Commission for the Laity


The Order’s Commission for the Laity met with the lay coordinators in General Assembly on 18-19 February in Rome. The commission looked at the situation of the Augustinian laity in the diverse areas of the Order and analyzed the mission of the assembly as an organizational group for the diverse experiences of the Augustinian laity.

As a result, regional/continental sub-committees were set up both for the lay and the religious members and to them was entrusted the mission of looking at the objectives of the commission and of empowering the presence of the laity in each region of the Order.

It was the decision of the commission to enlarge the number of lay representatives in each region and to set up ways for responding in each region’s needs. It will also be the work of the sub-committees to establish the ways in which to appoint/elect representatives so that they can be a part of the assembly beginning in 2019.

They reviewed the themes of the recent international congresses in order to plan for the meeting in the summer of 2018 with a theme flowing from those of the previous meetings.

The next meeting of the assembly will be in February 2017.
