Order of Saint Augustine

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

Thought of Saint Augustine
Lord, those who are bowed down with burdens you lift up, and they do not fall because you are their support.
(Confessions 11,31)
Mary believed, and what she believed was realized in her. Let us also believe, so that what she realized is also beneficial to us.
The absence of the Lord is not an absence. Just believe, and the one who you do not see is with you.

The Order's first Slovak friary in modern times

Kosice - Slovakia
November, 2011
Blessing of the new Convent

On November 13, 2011, Feast of All the Saints of the Order, a new Augustinian friary in Kosice, Slovakia was inaugurated. The building was made possible by the Italian Province and will be completed with the construction of a nearby church that will be financed by the Order. The faith and commitment of 5 Slovakian friars who presently are stationed in the community of Kosice, the participation of the archbishop and of all the priests of the diocese, numerous young people and families who collaborate with the community, are concrete signs make possible our looking to the future with hope. The seeds sown by Fathers Paolo Benedik and Angelo Lemme more than 15 years ago are now becoming a young plant with deep roots and a great desire to grow: another sign of hope for the Order and for the local Church in Eastern Europe.
