Breathe in me, O Holy Spirit,
that I may think what is Holy.

Guide me, O Holy Spirit,
that I may realize, what is Holy.

Attract me to you, O Holy Spirit,
that I may love what is Holy

Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit,

Defend me, O Holy Spirit

About us Discalced Augustinians

  The Order of the Discalced Augustinians (Ordo Augustiniensium Discalceatorum) is a contemplative-missionary community following the footsteps of St. Augustine, giving primacy to the spiritual life and searching for holiness through the special vow of Humility, serving the Church in accord with her needs. More than three hundred years ago, the OAD missionaries proclaimed Jesus, even giving their own life, in China and Vietnam. Since 1994 they are back in Asia. The starting was in Philippines, Cebu, Tabor Hill: “and the Glory of the Lord rose from the city and took a stand on the mountain at the east of the city” (Ez. 10:19). The actual commitment of the OAD in the Philippines is to serve the local Church and to prepare missionaries for the World, “Serving the Most High in Spirit of Humility according to the needs of the Church.

    Poverty, Chastity, Obedience with the fourth vow of Humility are the milestone of the OAD way – an ascetic and charismatic way trying to do what St. Augustine did: “unburdened from worldly concerns, he lived for God in the company of friends who had joined him, given over to prayer, fasting and good works, meditating day and night on the law of the Lord. What the Lord revealed to him in prayer and reflection, he passed on to others both present and absent orally and in writing.”(Life of St. Augustine by St. Possidius)
