Order of Saint Augustine

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

Thought of Saint Augustine
Fly over what is bodily and embrace the being of the soul; transcend the soul and please God.
(In Io. Ev. XX, 11)
Let us live well, and the times will be good. We are the times. The way we are will the times be.
(Sermo 80,8)
So that we believe in Christ, dwell in his words. By dwelling there, we will truly be his disciples. For he doesn't have only twelve apostles as his disciples. He also has those who dwell in his word.
