Elisabetta and the rules of St. Augustine

For about two years, Elisabetta had divided her days between prayer and work, and meditated and studied the Holy Scriptures, along with the rules and writings of St. Augustine, in order to learn his spirituality and to become an Augustinian nun.
Blessed Elisabetta made this rule her own, trying to make it her way of life, so much so that we find parts of it in the rules she wrote for the Sisters of Our Lady of Sorrows, as well as in her writings, which are also enriched with the specificity of the charism she received from the Lord, with her natural gifts, and with her experience of life in the reality of the time in which she lived.
