If the Benedictines created Benedictine liqueor then the Augustinians would be famous for Scrumpy
But just as Benedictines look as if they have just come out of Saville Row, Augustinians look as if they have just slept in their habits.
Actually, Austin spirituality is something I can identify with. I like to go to Clare Priory at Clare near Sudbury on the Suffolk Essex border. It is a beautiful place for a retreat.
If you are ever feeling under pressure, depressed or feel you need a ‘pick me up’ then I recommend at least two days at Clare. It works wonders. Folks back home would notice the change in you.
If I joined an Order, the Augustinians would definitely be my preferred choice
