Thought of Saint Augustine
Mary did the will of the Father, and that is why it is greater for her to have been a disciple of Christ than to have been the mother of Christ.
There is an origin and source of virtue. There is a root of wisdom. And, there is, so to speak, a region of changeless truth. If the soul leaves this region, it lives in darkness but, when it approaches this region, it is enlightened.
(En. in ps. 58, S 1, 18)
Mary was happy because she listened and kept God's word. She kept the truth in her spirit more than in the flesh of her womb.

Mission Statement

The mission of the International Commission on the Youth Apostolate is twofold: (1) to promote youth ministry as a core activity of the Augustinian Order and (2) to encourage young people to follow Jesus Christ in the spirit of St. Augustine through service to the Church, interiority, and common life.

Action Plan

Such a mission will be possible through:

  1. organizing the International Augustinian Youth Encounter, components of which include:
    1. the sharing of the diverse experiences of Augustinian youth throughout the world
    2. prayer and liturgy that are both prophetic and contemporary
    3. Justice and Peace education and spiritual formation
    4. promotion of regional youth gatherings
  2. ongoing dialogue with and formation of Youth Animators in Augustinian apostolates (e.g., sharing of ideas and resources through the internet and other means of modern technology)
