On November 13, we celebrate the birthday of St. Augustine as well as the Feast of All Augustinian Saints. We invite you first, to celebrate this day by contemplating the words with which St. Augustine himself celebrated his own first moments, in Book I of his Confessions:
Secondly, we invite you to share a moment of reflection upon this painting that hangs in the chapel of our Novitiate House in Racine, WI. In the upper portion of the painting, Christ is surrounded by the symbols of the four Evangelists. In the lower portion, you will see (L to R) St. Rita of Cascia, St. Thomas of Villanova, St. Nicholas of Tolentine, Bl. Frederick of Regensburg (keeling), St. Monica, and St. Augustine.
