Thought of Saint Augustine
We dwell in the Lord when we are his body and he dwells in us when we are his temple.
To have a good idea of God is the truest beginning of piety.
(De libero arbitrio I, 2,5)
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)

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.
