Order of Saint Augustine

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

Thought of Saint Augustine
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)
So great is the power of the good that even evil doers seek it.
(Sermo 29, 1)
Everything outside of us fluctuates with the storms and temptations of this age. But we need an interior desert where we gather ourselves and live of our faith.
(Sermo 47,25)

The members of the International Commission on Youth Apostolate held a meeting in Rome to study the guidelines of the Order on the Youth Apostolate. The participating members shared the experiences of the Pastoral Youth Ministry in their respective circumscriptions. The Commission discussed on the uniqueness of Augustinian Youth Apostolate and how we as Augustinians could use the modern communication network to reach out effectively to young people who are restlessly seeking for something more. Some considerations were made; these will be presented to the Major Superiors in June.

The commission made an evaluation of the last Augustinian Youth Encounter held in Sao Paolo, Brazil. The next Youth Encounter is scheduled for July 2016 in Czech Republic. Drawing from the homily of the Holy Father Pope Francis at the inaugural mass of the last General Chapter, the Commission came up with a proposed theme for the next Augustinian Youth Gathering: “Restlessness of the Heart among Young People Today. An Augustinian Response”.

In view of the next Augustinian Youth Encounter, an organising committee has been set up to facilitate the coordination of the programme of activities together with the local organisers. The International Youth Commission consists of the following members: Edward DALENG and Patricio VILLALBA (Assistants General), Anthony EDOGAME (NIG), Michele FALCONE (ITA), Benjamin Garcia FRANCO (MEX), Benjamin KUCZALA (POL), Felix MECKL (GER), Mark MENEGATTI (CAL), Vibin Franci MUTIRAPARAMBIL (IND), Emerson Carlos SILVA (BRM), Alejandro Vincente TEJERO (ESP). The Commission will meet again between 10th-11th March 2015 in Prague.
