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)
God wished to sow in every soul the seeds of intelligence and wisdom.
(Sermo 117,11)
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)

Christmas Solidarity


Christmas night, which we have recently celebrated, was special for the Augustinian community of Colegio Mayor San Agustín de Madrid. This community, first in the Augustinian Province Federation of Spain, had decided to invite to dinner 80 people without resources. In an atmosphere of welcome and fraternity, they entered our religious house and became for us the true meaning of Christmas night. Everything went along in the best way, faces full of happiness and joy for those who joined us at our home. What a great testimony!

The community was in charge of decorating the dining room, serving dinner and preparing everything so that none of the guests lacked anything. The initiative came from the same community, which wants to be open and welcoming, in every way, and the best way was to open our hearts to those who, on a special night, were not able to enjoy the warmth of a home, as it was celebrated with the community of the Colegio Mayor de San Agustin!
