Augustinian Province of Saint Thomas of Villanova
We experience God through community and live by the Rule established by Saint Augustine of Hippo. We are one of three Provinces in the United States. Ministries of our Province are located on the east coast of the United States, with missions in Japan and Peru. Our work as Catholic priests and brothers is in the community, and it is with the support and friendship of each community, that we join the international community of Augustinians in serving the world.
Augustine For Today
January 23 - Saint Josephine Mary of Beniganim, O.S.A.
In these two women [Martha and Mary] two lives are typified: the present life and that of the future, the life of toil and that of peace, the wretched and the blissful, the temporal and the eternal. Both are blameless, both, I say, are praiseworthy; but one is laborious and the other leisured. Martha was the image of things present, Mary of things to come. In Martha’s employment we share, for Mary’s we hope. Let us work well at the one that we may fully possess the other.
