Augustinians Today

We, who have been freely created and redeemed, freely called and justified, should render thanks to God and carry out our mission in peace and humility, rejoicing in hope and in the expectation of the crown of life (Revelation 2:10), by which God, in rewarding our good deeds, will in fact be doing nothing more than crowning his own gifts.
