Order of Saint Augustine

"Anima una et cor unum in Deum!" (Regula)

Thought of Saint Augustine
Love either rises or falls. With honest love we rise to God; with dishonest love we fall into the pit.
(En. in ps. 122, 1)
I thirst in this journey, I thirst as run ahead but will be sated only when I come to the end.
(En. in ps. 41, 5)
When did the Lord want to show himself? At the breaking of the bread. We can be sure of that: by sharing the bread, we recognize the Lord.

The Order's first Slovak friary in modern times

Kosice - Slovakia
November, 2011
Blessing of the new Convent

On November 13, 2011, Feast of All the Saints of the Order, a new Augustinian friary in Kosice, Slovakia was inaugurated. The building was made possible by the Italian Province and will be completed with the construction of a nearby church that will be financed by the Order. The faith and commitment of 5 Slovakian friars who presently are stationed in the community of Kosice, the participation of the archbishop and of all the priests of the diocese, numerous young people and families who collaborate with the community, are concrete signs make possible our looking to the future with hope. The seeds sown by Fathers Paolo Benedik and Angelo Lemme more than 15 years ago are now becoming a young plant with deep roots and a great desire to grow: another sign of hope for the Order and for the local Church in Eastern Europe.
