"Speaking of fraternal love, John says: 'How can a man who does not love the brother whom he can see, love God whom he does not see?' (1Jn 4: 20). Do you think what when you love your brother you are loving him alone and not Christ as well? That is impossible, because you are loving the members of Christ. When you love Christ's members, you love Christ himself. When you love Christ, you love the Father. Love cannot be split up. Begin loving somewhere and the rest will follow" (Hom 1Jn 10. 3)

The Province is currently preparing for a review by the National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church in Ireland. We welcome this review. We invite anybody who wishes to contact us about our past or current record as Augustinians in safeguarding children and how we responded and continue to respond today to anyone who was a victim of any kind of abuse, particularly sexual abuse, to contact us, or the Gardaí or the National Board itself. Contact details are included on the letter which is attached below. Please, be assured, your voice will be heard and acted upon.
