Thought of Saint Augustine
God wished to sow in every soul the seeds of intelligence and wisdom.
(Sermo 117,11)
The absence of the Lord is not an absence. Just believe, and the one who you do not see is with you.
Man was not created as an irrational animal bent toward the earth but, erect in stature, a reminder to look above.
(De Civ. Dei XXII, 24, 4)

Assembly of the Friars in Cuba

The Friars of the delegation in Cuba met in Havana with the Vicar General, Joseph Farrell, osa ,for three days at the beginning of May. Topics of discussion included a summary of the many good works that the six Friars are accomplishing as they live and minister in our three communities in Cuba, a discussion on the fragility of the Augustinian presence in Cuba given the fact that we have only two Friars in each community, opportunities for New Evangelization in Cuba, and vocational prospects and formation of candidates.

The members of the assembly were able to visit the Diocesan Seminary of Havana and also visited the site of the former seminary, part of which is being transformed into a Cultural Center named in honor of Félix Varela. A concelebrated closing Mass of the assembly took place at the church of Santo Cristo Buen Viaje in Havana.

During the two week visit, the Vicar General was able to visit and spend time with our brothers in all three communities: Havana, Chambas, and Puerto Padre. Let us continue to keep in our prayers all of our missionaries along with our brothers who are committed to this important ministry of our Augustinian presence in Cuba.
