Mother of Good Counsel: Augustinians


The feast of the Mother of Good Counsel is April 26.

The Vincentian Fathers in Perryville, Missouri, are hosting a novena at the shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.

Our Lady of Good Counsel has always been the title honored by the Augustinians. Let us therefore pray for Augustinian vocations, and vocations to those who follow the Rule of St. Augustine.
