Thought of Saint Augustine
To have a good idea of God is the truest beginning of piety.
(De libero arbitrio I, 2,5)
So great is the power of the good that even evil doers seek it.
(Sermo 29, 1)
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)

Visitation of the Prior General in Korea


During these days the Assembly of the Delegation of Korea, “Saint Nicholas of Tolentine” is taking place and the Prior General, Fr. Alejandro Moral Anton, and the Assistant General, Anthony Banks are taking part.

The Assembly opened with the celebration of the Eucharist, presided by Fr. Kim Paolo, and the Prior General preached the homily. Participating were 11 Korean friars and 3 other friars, two from Cebu and one from Australia, as well as three simply professed, (one of them is FR. Hong Seung-Min, who will profess solemn vows this Saturday), and three novices.

Six year ago the Korean Delegation asked the General Council for help in the construction of a Retreat House in Yeonchon, ten kilometers from the border with North Korea. The final stage of construction is underway and it will have room for 27 retreatants each with their room along with ten rooms for gatherings. Even though all of the financing of the new building has not yet arrived, our brothers have already experienced the great generosity of the people of Korea and of the Order outside of Korea.

The Prior General was able to meet during these days with the local bishop, Mons. Pedro Lee
