Events of this week in the United States Capitol have brought shock and sorrow to so many of us, not only in the violence, injuries and loss of life that we have witnessed, but also in the stinging blow to our beliefs and hopes as a people. As we seek to address this painful situation, let us not neglect the role of faith, and pray with ever greater conviction for this republic of ours that out of this tragedy we may become more perfectly “one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all.” – Fr. Michael Di Gregorio, O.S.A., Prior Provincial

Augustinian Volunteers Come Together
for a Virtual Mid-Year Retreat

This past week, the Augustinian Volunteers kicked off the second portion of their volunteer year with a Mid Year retreat, held virtually via Zoom. Although they were not able to gather in person, there was still ample opportunity for volunteers to reconnect with one another, and reflect on their spirituality, community life, and experiences in service. Volunteers will resume their service next week once they complete their quarantine.
In case you missed it, be sure to check out the National Shrine of Saint Rita of Cascia’s virtual Christmas Mass. Fr. Bob Guessetto, O.S.A., served as the celebrant and homilist for this special recording of the celebration of the Eucharist from the Shrine for the Nativity of the Lord.

Thank You for Your Impact!
The Augustinian Friars are grateful to our many friends and benefactors who have given so generously during the first half of the fiscal year and especially during this Christmas season. Because of you, our friars are able to serve the Church and be a light to God’s people. Prayerful blessings for a new year filled with good health, peace and prosperity.
“We already know the head and the body. He is the head and we the body. When we hear His voice we must understand it as coming from the head and the body, because the whole suffered. We also suffered in him and, what we suffer. He suffers in us. If a man’s head suffers, can we say that the hands suffer not? Or, if the hands suffer, can it be said that the head suffers not?”

Exposition on the Psalms 62,2
