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

Thought of Saint Augustine
I thank you, Lord, my joy and my glory, my hope and my God. I thank you for your gifts to me. Keep them unharmed for me: they will be the making of me, and I shall be with you for my being is your gift.
(Confessions I, 20)
Your prayer is a conversation with God. When you read, it is God who is speaking, when you pray, it is with God that you are speaking.
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)

Augustinian Youth en route to Rio

Aparecida - Brazil
July 2013

A day after the Augustinian Youth Encounter ended, the young people in attendance proceeded to Rio de Janeiro for World Youth Day 2013 with Pope Francis. They were accompanied by the organizers of the Augustinian Encounter, by the friars of their respective countries, and by the Prior General, Fr. Robert Prevost, and Msgr. Alberto Bochatey, Augustinian auxiliary bishop of La Plata, Argentina. Midway to Rio, the group passed by the shrine of Aparecida, the largest in South America, and attended the 10:00 am Sunday concelebrated mass at the shrine’s main chapel.

The Augustinian youth, more than 500 of them, arrived in Rio in the evening and were lodged at our 2 OSA communities (a parish and a high school) and at other neighboring religious houses in Rio. There they will join with the hundreds of thousands of young people who have gathered from around the world to greet Pope Francis and celebrate their common faith.
