Thought of Saint Augustine
You see creation; love the Author of these marvels. Attach yourself to the one who is essential. Love the Creator!
Whoever seeks joy in himself will be sad, but whoever seeks joy in God will always be joyful because God is forever.
(In Io. Ev. XIV, 2)
To have a good idea of God is the truest beginning of piety.
(De libero arbitrio I, 2,5)

Saint Joseph, Husband of the Virgin Mary, Protector of the Order

March 19

The General Chapter of 1491, celebrated in Rome, decreed: "In all the houses and monasteries of our Order the Office of Saint Joseph, whose feast is the 19th of March, is to be celebrated." In 1722 the Order obtained the faculty of celebrating the patronage of Saint Joseph on the third Sunday of Easter, following the practice of the Recollect and Discalced Congregations of the Order which had obtained this privilege in 1700.
