Ensuring a Strong Presence of
Augustinians into the Future
Villanova Alumnus Anthony Dellomo came to Villanova University in 1961 from Staten Island, New York. He was lost and home sick. He met Fr. Richard D. Appicci, O.S.A. who took him under his wing and guided him. Anthony met many other Augustinians through Fr. Appicci and he attached himself to the Augustinian charism and mission.
MAY 22
Don’t let the waves overwhelm you when your heart is upset by temptation. And yet because we are human, if the wind has driven us on and shaken our souls with passion, let us not despair; let us wake up Christ, and so sail on in a calm sea, and reach our home country.
