As its name shows the Augustinian Recollect Missionaries is a missionary congregation born in the mission and for the mission cultivated in a special way: charity, humility, simplicity and joy. We have a father: AUGUSTINE, a restless heart man who lived friendship in community. His ideal was to live as the first Christians, united in harmony seeking God. The religious lifestyle that he projected for his communities is to live unanimously and in harmony in the house of the Lord and to have one soul and one heart in God, without calling anything of his own, but having everything in common. RECOLLECTS because every missionary disciple Augustinian Recollects, discovers every day that in her own history and the history of humanity, she is loved, cared for and guided by merciful God; so that living this conviction of faith, she announces with joy and courage the person of Jesus and where he is, strengthening ties of fraternity with those around her, especially with the simplest and weakest. This conviction of faith is born and strengthened in the daily encounter with God the Trinity, who goes out to meet those who seek him with sincere and humble faith in the Sacred Scriptures, prayer, the Eucharist and other sacraments.
