Martin and Melchior and companions, the Japanese Martyrs; St. Magdalen of Nagasaki; Mother Mariana of St. Joseph (Spain); Mother Maria of St. Joseph (Venezuela); Mother Antonio de Jesús (Spain); St. Ezekiel Moreno; and Sts. Vincent Soler and companions, the Martyrs of Motril. St. Augustine, dressed as a bishop, is portrayed as reaching out toward Mary, Mother of Consolation.

DEVOTION IS A SPECIAL FORM OF PRAYER
There are many devotions within the Catholic tradition such as the recitation of the Rosary, Stations of the Cross, and various novenas to Mary and the Saints. There are also devotions within the Augustinian tradition.
Here you will find devotions that we as Augustinian Recollects have been promoting in recent days:
Triduum in preparation for the Solemnity of St. Augustine.
The Devotion to St. Monica: Patroness of Christian Mothers.
The Devotion to St. Ezekiel Moreno: Patron of those afflicted with cancer.
Blessing of the Bread of St. Nicholas of Tolentine.
Blessing of the Roses of St. Rita of Cascia.
Litany of St. Augustine and St. Monica.
