On "Year of the Holiness" we, Augustinian Recollect, return to the heart where we will find Christ
The Prior General Fray Miguel Miró Miró, on the occasion of the feast of St. Augustine, addresses to the entire Augustinian Recollect family a message made prayer and, citing Pope Francis, encourages everyone to reflect on his or her own live "the ideal of the first Christians, being living prophecy of communion in our world, so that there may not be division, no conflict nor exclusion, but that harmony reigns and dialogue may be promoted. "

To the whole Augustinian Recollect Family

Let us celebrate with gratitude and joy the Solemnity of St. Augustine.

In this Year of Holiness let us come to Augustine with confidence: father, teacher, friend and companion on the road. In him we always find the evangelical inspiration and the uniting power of the charism that brings us together in Christ, creating communion.

Augustine, teach us to return to our heart

The saints of the Order and many Christians of all ages have learned from Augustine to live, pray and love. We also need the Bishop of Hippo to teach us to seek the Truth, returning to the heart, where we find Christ, the "beauty always ancient and always new." Like Augustine, we also need the grace of Christ, the love of the Father and the wisdom that comes from the Spirit, to advance in ways of interiority, love and peace.

Augustine, help us to become creators of communion.

Let us put our hope in the mercy of the Lord and ask him to give us his Spirit to "keep with renewed fervor the dream of St. Augustine to live as brothers "with one heart and one soul "(Rule 1, 2 ), reflecting the ideals of the first Christians and being a living witness of communion before the world, so that there may not be division, no conflict nor exclusion, but that harmony and dialogue may prevail" (Francis’ Address to the 55th Chapter of the Augustinian Recollects).

We need Augustine to guide us and make us abandon our old outlook in order to know Jesus even more. From our Father let us learn to become creators of communion, to dialogue in community, to make proposals of life and hope, to work for peace and to be in solidarity with the poorest. Let us ask Augustine to teach us to take seriously our daily formation, growing in prayer, study and service. May he help us to become consistent and bold in the mission of proclaiming the Gospel and building the Kingdom of God.

Make us simple and generous

St. Augustine teach us to be humble and grateful
to recognize the gifts of the Lord and
to be generous to share them with joy.
You, who have been the beacon of the Gospel to
so many generations walk with us today

and illumine our paths and processes
of revitalization. Help us to discern
the will of God and to make the right decisions
in response to the call of the Church
and the needs of men. Amen.

May the Lord renew in the Augustinian Recollect Family the spirit he infused In St. Augustine, so that we may live united in Christ and proclaim the Gospel with hope and joy.
