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)
Come back to your heart, and from there to God. For the path is not long from your heart to God.
I realize what I am and praise you for it. Come to my aid, that I may not stray from the way of salvation.
(Sermo 67, 9)

Mission Experiences during the AYE 2013

Guarulhos - Brazil
July 2013


The next to the last day of the 2013 Augustinian Youth Encounter was spent principally in Villa Sta. Monica in Guarolhos, Sao Paulo. In the morning, the participants shared in some pastoral experiences by visiting homes of the poor in and around the vicinity of Villa Sta. Monica.

This “experience of mission” on the part of the youth concluded with Mass in the afternoon presided by the Prior General, Father Robert F. Prevost, in the chapel of the Villa.

In the evening, participants joined the various youth groups belonging to the episcopal zone of San Jose under the jurisdiction of one of the auxiliary bishops of Sao Paulo, Msgr. Edmar Peron in Campo Cerete, who will also participate in World Youth Day 2013 in Rio de Janeiro.
