Thought of Saint Augustine
If you elevate yourself, God distances himself from you. If you humble yourself, he leans towards you.
The majesty of God surpasses by far our capacity for expression, because it is better to think of God than to talk of Him, and better is He still than what is thought.
(De Trinitate VII, 4,7)
Mary believed, and what she believed was realized in her. Let us also believe, so that what she realized is also beneficial to us.

Mission Statement

The mission of the International Commission on the Youth Apostolate is twofold: (1) to promote youth ministry as a core activity of the Augustinian Order and (2) to encourage young people to follow Jesus Christ in the spirit of St. Augustine through service to the Church, interiority, and common life.

Action Plan

Such a mission will be possible through:

  1. organizing the International Augustinian Youth Encounter, components of which include:
    1. the sharing of the diverse experiences of Augustinian youth throughout the world
    2. prayer and liturgy that are both prophetic and contemporary
    3. Justice and Peace education and spiritual formation
    4. promotion of regional youth gatherings
  2. ongoing dialogue with and formation of Youth Animators in Augustinian apostolates (e.g., sharing of ideas and resources through the internet and other means of modern technology)
