What drew you to the Augustinians? Relationship. I have known the Augustinians since beginning that Malvern Prep in sixth grade. The quality and depth of the relationships I have with so many Augustinians has truly allowed me to see the face of Christ.
Favorite part about being an Augustinian? Everything starts and ends in the heart. Our days are enveloped in prayer. To be able to gather myself in the depths of my heart in prayer as I begin the day, to then act upon what was found in the heart during the day, and finally to return to the heart at the end of the day is an incredible gift.
Favorite Saint: Other than St. Augustine, I am drawn to the life and teachings of Saint Bonaventure. Like Augustine, Bonaventure recognized that our life is a journey to God. Love is the first step on this journey, and love is also the last step. The entire journey never loses sight of the primacy of love.
Favorite Book: The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
