Augustinian Core Values

1. Interiority

"Remember, there is one who listens to you, so do not hesitate to pray to Him…You need only to purify the inmost recesses of your heart"

St. Augustine

2. Humility

"Where Humility reigns, there is God”

3. Love for God and neighbor

You who do not yet see God will, by loving your neighbor, make yourself worthy of seeing Him. By loving your neighbor, you cleanse your eyes so you can see God. Love your neighbor, then and see within yourself the source of this love of neighbor.

Sermon on John 17

4. Strong Faith in God

“Faith is to believe what you do not see, the reward of this faith is to see what you believe”

5. Community and Friendship

“Let all live together in harmony and love, and honor God in each other, because you have become God’s temple”

Rule of St. Augustine

6. Courage and Perseverance

“Fight that you may overcome, overcome that you may be crowned. Be humble and persevering, lest you fall in battle.”

7. Agent of Justice, unity and Peace

In the absence of justice, what is sovereignty but organized robbery? The Purpose of wars is Peace.
