With the sometimes frenetic pace of modern life, many people are searching for ways to slow down and to enhance their spirituality.
The Rev. Michael Di Gregorio, O.S.A., the prior provincial of St. Thomas of Villanova, who leads 154 friars in the Eastern United States, one of three U.S. Augustinian provinces, recently published a new book, “Hearts On Fire.” The 311-page volume is full of short vignettes about the lives of 94 saints, blesseds and servants of God who are related to the Augustinian tradition.
“For many years, I have been spending a week or so with our novices [candidates to join the order] and teaching them about the lives of our saints,” Di Gregorio said. “I’ve collected a lot of information.”
