Named after Augustine of Hippo (354–430), applies to two separate types of Catholic religious orders and some Anglican religious orders. Within Anglicanism the Rule of St Augustine is followed only by women, who form several different communities of Augustinian nuns in the Anglican Communion. Within Roman Catholicism Augustinians may be members of either one of two separate and distinct types of Order:
Several mendicant Orders of friars, who lived a mixed religious life of contemplation and apostolic ministry and follow the Rule of St. Augustine, a brief document providing guidelines for living in a religious community. The largest and most familiar, originally known as the Hermits of Saint Augustine (O.E.S.A. - Ordo Eremitarum sancti Augustini) and also as the Austin friars, is now simply referred to as the Order of Saint Augustine (O.S.A.). Two other Orders, the Order of Augustinian Recollects and the Discalced Augustinians, were once part of the Augustinian Order under a single Prior General. The Recollect friars, founded in 1588 as a reform movement of the Augustinian friars in Spain, became autonomous in 1612 with their first Prior General, Enrique de la Sagrada. The Discalced friars became an independent congregation with their own Prior General in 1592, and were raised to the status of a separate mendicant order in 1610. Various congregations of clerics known as Canons Regular who also follow the Rule of Saint Augustine, embrace the evangelical counsels and lead a semi-monastic life, while remaining committed to pastoral care, appropriate to their primary vocation as priests. They generally form one large community, which might serve parishes in the vicinity, and are organized into autonomous congregation, which normally are distinct by region.
Poem: Salvation Station .a spiritual man and one who has spent a life studying the worlds religions..we all seek something because we are driven by feelings and no matter how rich ..how young how old what we look like it all comes down to wanting to feel good..feeling good sells .its why drugs and alcohol and excess and sex all sell and become addictions and obsessions..Religion is no different ..it's probably the biggest wealthiest market on the planet ..From Catholics most,and Protestant Christianity,to Scientology and Mormonism ..what makes me sick is to see people take advantage of others behind a veil of religion and salvation ..they market it sell it live like kings ..makes me sick frankly ..from L.Ron to John Smith ..Pat Robertson to Jack VanImpe and his Wife Rexella who make millions on every "domesday"prophesy scam they can think of Y2K 2012hey they have they answer for you just put those checks in the mail ..thankfully we all did with Y2K what a disaster that was ..lol..you get my point ?

"I have found, in short, from reading my own writing, that my subject in fiction is the action of grace in territory largely held by the devil.
I have also found that what I write is read by an audience which puts little stock either in grace or the devil." I love that in class today we paused from Bonhoeffer, Niebuhr, & Barth to devote an entire class to the absolute brilliance of Ms. Flannery O'Connor. #literature#south#Catholic#flanneryoconnor#grace

O Lord Jesus Christ, in presenting ourselves before Your adorable Face to ask of You the graces of which we stand most in need, we beseech You above all, to grant us that interior disposition of never refusing at any time to do what You requires of us by Your holy Commandments and Divine inspirations. Amen.
O Jesus! meek and humble of heart, Hear me.
That others may be chosen and I set aside, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.
That others may be praised and I unnoticed, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.
That others may be preferred to me in everything, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.
That others may become holier than I, provided that I may become as holy as I should, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it... #Reparation#Humility#Lent
