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
October 17 - SAINT IGNATIUS OF ANTIOCH, BISHOP AND MARTYR
“By patience we are supported when, amid the troubles of this world, our happiness is postponed. It was with such patience that Kind David endured the attacks of his son Absalom. Although he could easily have destroyed Absalom, David forbade those who were grieved and upset by such treason to take vengeance on his wayward son. He accepted the moment as a time for humility and bowed to the will of God and drank the bitter wine of his son’s disloyalty with the greatest patience.”
On Patience, 9.8
