“I am Augustine, Bishop of Hippo; behold here the rule which I have written; if your fellow-brethren, my sons, shall have observed it well, they shall stand without fear in the presence of Christ on the terrible day of the last judgment”
– Our Holy Father Augustine gives the Rule to St. Norbert
November 13th is the Feast of All the Saints of the Order of Prémontré and All the Saints of Canons Regular.
As Canons Regular, following the Rule of Our Holy Father Augustine, the Premonstratensians belong to the same family of canons regular that include the Canons Regular of the Lateran, the Canons Regular of St. Augustine, the Canons Regular of the Immaculate Conception, the Canons Regular of the Holy Cross, the Canons Regular of the Swiss Congregation of St. Maurice and The Congregation of SS. Nicholas and Bernard of Mont Joux amongst others. More recent foundations have increased the number of communities of canons regular following the Augustinian Rule, such as the Canons Regular of the Mother of God.
