New publication: Searching and Confessing, Augustine's Quest for Wisdom and Truth


A new book, Searching and Confessing, Augustine's Quest for Wisdom and Truth, written by Rev. Dr Salvino Caruana O.S.A. and published by the Maltese Augustinian Province was launched last Friday, January 13. The book, written in English, helps the reader get closer to the great figure of Saint Augustine and invites him to journey with the saint in his search for wisdom and truth. This is done in five main chapters in which he refers to different phases of Augustine's continuous struggle along his life.

The Book was presented in a wonderful evening that was staged in the Auditorium of the Millennium Chapel, in the presence of the Prior Provincial Fr Leslie Gatt O.S.A. and H.E. Mons Savio Hon Tai-Fai, Apostolic Nuncio for Malta. At the opening of the event, the author, Fr Salvino welcomed those present and thanked all those who, in one way or another, were part of this project which adds up to the large number of writings and translations written by himself. Over the years Fr Salvino has given us numerous works that help us get closer to the figure and teachings of Saint Augustine. The evening proceded with two interesting appreciations presented by the Rev. Dr Stefan Attard, Dean of the Faculty of Theology, and the Rev. Dr Jonathan Farrugia, Head of the Department of Patrology in the same Faculty. The evening also included some musical pieces from pianist Julia Miller and soprano Christine Dalli.

This evening took place just a week before the opening of another course of the Augustinian Institute coordinated by Fr Salvino. The Course will take place every Friday between January 20 and March 24 at The Santa Rita Priory, Saint Julians and will be open for everyone. This year’s course will deal with themes related to Saint Augustine's book De catechizandis rudibus.
