Augustinian Origins, Charism, and Spirituality
The Order of Saint Augustine came into existence as an apostolic brotherhood dedicated, without qualification, to pastoral service. The studies and documents in this volume present a clear picture of both aspects. On the one hand, they make it possible to see how the presence of Saint Augustine was felt in the Order from its very beginnings. It takes its name from him and follows his “Rule.” In addition, it claims historical continuity with the Saint’s monastic foundations. Balbino Rano carefully analyzes these various points to give a sound re-examination of history marked by his customary keen critical sense and competence. On the other hand, the apostolic dimension which the Order has by reason of its being founded as an apostolic brotherhood is fully emphasized throughout these pages, which show that this aspect belongs to the very essence of the Augustinian Order’s charism.
