Rescript of the Sacred Congregation of Religious
July 18, 1911
By force of which the few juridical bonds, if any yet remain,
between the Recollection and the Order of St. Augustine are dissolved
Petition for favors:

Most Holy Father – The present Vicar General of the Order of Recollect Hermits of St. Augustine of the Congregation of Spain and the Indies, prostrate at the feet of Your Holiness, most humbly implores the following favors for the sake of the better governance of the Congregation committed to his care:
(1) That all the exemptions which the Congregation of Discalced Augustinians of Italy enjoy, especially as regards subjection to the Prior General of the Order of Hermits of St. Augustine, may also be enjoyed by the Congregation of Spain and the Indies, since it is from the latter that the former took its origin towards the end of the XVI century, and since the way of life and the government of both are about the same.
(2) That the Apostolic Letter Apostolici Muneris, issued in the form of a Brief on February 11, 1602, by Pope Clement VIII of happy memory, be considered abrogated in what concerns the visitation of the Discalced or Recollect Augustinians by the Most Reverend Prior General, and also the Brief Ad Sacram Beati Petri Sedem of Gregory XV (August 31, 1622) insofar as it refers to the same matter.
(3) That the Vicar General of the Congregation of Spain and the Indies enjoy all the privileges which the Most Rev. Prior General enjoys over the sodalities and confraternities under the invocation of the saints of the Order of St. Augustine, and also that the Congregation might enjoy all the spiritual favors already granted or to be granted in the future to the Order of Hermits of St. Augustine.
(4) That the Apostolic Letter Permulata, issued for the aforesaid Congregation on August 18, 1795, by Pius VI of holy memory, be regarded as abrogated, since the reasons for which it was issued no longer exist. Et Deus, etc.

Fr. Miguel Miró visited between June and October most of the Augustinian Recollects working in Brazil, Guatemala, Colombia, Mexico and United States to explain the process of change being undertaken in the centuries-old Order. "How can we revitalize our charism? How will we approach the process? Why do we have to reorganize? How are we going to cope with the difficulties? Do we want change?" These are some of the questions the prior general had to discuss in his meetings with the religious.

Fr. General with the members of the Province of St. Augustine

 

The General Chapter held towards the end of 2010 challenged all the Augustinian Recollects to make "a daring, oblative and passionate option", i.e., the option to abandon all material guarantees and be open to the initiatives of God by earnestly listening to his Word.
