Thought of Saint Augustine
Habits support the intelligence just as a way of living leads to a way of life.
(In Io. Ev. XVIII, 7)
Mary believed, and what she believed was realized in her. Let us also believe, so that what she realized is also beneficial to us.
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)

Dear Brother,

The International Commission for Augustinian Centers of Education is preparing for an International Congress which will take place at Villanova University (USA) from July 24-28, 2017. The theme chosen for the Congress is: Augustinian Pedagogy: A Passion for Education: The love of knowledge and truth should invite us to continue learning. The love of others should compel us to teach. (Augustine: Answers to the Eight Questions of Dulcitius).

Our OSA Constitutions remind us that, we should have the greatest esteem for the educational apostolate and consider it as one of the special missions of our Order. (Const. 161). The International Congress at Villanova University is one of the ways we are able to demonstrate our esteem for this apostolate. The Congress will provide the opportunity for those who participate in the ministry of Augustinian education to encounter each other in a professional environment and share with each other experiences and successful programs from their respective centers of education.

We plan to explore the theme of the Congress with three main talks presented at the beginning of each day. (Day 2: Augustinian Passion for Spirituality: Love of Knowledge and Search for Truth; Day 3: Augustinian Passion for Teaching and Learning: Compelled to Teach; Day 4: Augustinian Passion for Justice and Peace: Love for others) In the afternoon of Tuesday, July 25th and Thursday, July 27th we are planning a series of workshops which will be of 90 minutes duration, repeated on four occasions, twice on Tuesday and twice on Thursday with different participants. We are encouraging the presenters to engage the participants so that the workshops become creative and dynamic opportunities in accordance with Augustinian Pedagogy.

We are encouraging all our centers of education to send participants to this Congress (4 per school) and ask for your assistance in spreading the word and encouraging the schools in your circumscription to register. Information regarding the congress and registration can be found on the Order’s website: www.augustinians.net

If you should have any questions you can contact the Chair of the Commission for Augustinian Centers of Education, Joseph Farrell at jfarrell@osacuria.org or the Vice-chair, Franz Klein at fklein@osacuria.org.

May God continue to bless our apostolates of education.

Fraternally,

Alejandro Moral Antón, OSA
Prior General
