Course on Augustinian formation for Religious in the United States
12-10-2017 Estados Unidos
Augustinian Christology has been the main theme of the course, which has been carried out in the Saint Augustine Priory in Oxnard, California, led by the Augustinian Recollect Enrique Eguiarte, in which twenty-six members of the Augustinian Recollect family have taken part.
From the 18th to the 20th of September, in Saint Augustine’s Priory, a Recollect community in Oxnard, California, they have undertaken a course on permanent formation. It has been focused upon how Saint Augustine understood, lived, reflected upon and felt about the person of Christ.

In total twenty-six members of the Augustinian Recollect family were present. They came from the communities of New Jersey, New York, New Mexico and California. They were all present in the course, led by the Augustinian Recollect Enrique Eguiarte, a specialist in Patrology.

The course has served not only for exploring in greater depth the figure of Saint Augustine of Hippo, but also for reflecting upon the charisma and identity of the Augustinian Recollect Family. Particularly, in the light of a better identification with the Saint from Hippo and the vision he had about Christ.

Other related themes were vocation and the following of Jesus in the Religious Life. This aroused much interest and comments from those present in the course.

Mutual sharing of knowledge and fraternal relations have also been important, given that Religious from two different provinces were present in the course and that they have been asked to form only one Province from May 2018 onwards. In fact, the course itself was planned as part of the plan to unite Provinces, in a section on the collaboration in permanent formation before the union is put in place.

The course finished with a summons for everyone to delve deeper into Augustinian thought. Something which is particularly rich for pastoral tasks, the strengthening of community life, personal prayer and the spirituality of communion which is a part of the same Augustinian Recollect charisma.
