Note of condolence from the Prior general

The Order of Augustinian Recollects expresses its sorrow for the death of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI and joins in the grief of the whole Church, but also in gratitude for all that his magisterium has meant; we are especially grateful for his passion for the figure and thought of St. Augustine that he has so often exposed in a masterful way.

Thank you Holy Father for your life, for your witness, for your magisterium and for your gestures. The Order commends you in its prayer and we ask that from heaven you continue to support the Church with your prayer.

Fr. Miguel Ángel Hernandez
Prior General
