Patrick Foley I attended a Discernment week at St Bernard Abbey in the summer of 1961 ... wow, was the best. I have now been a priest for 45 years. Thank you, Benedictines !

Kevin Daugherty Brother Gus was a key person in my personal development while a student, then a graduate, and afterward through the years. Although I live in Nashville, I've considered St. Bernard and Cullman my second home since my college freshman year in 1973. Brother Gus never saw me during a visit without asking me in detail about my family, and my cousin David Daugherty, who started at the same time as a freshman in 1973. I truly loved Brother Gus, and I am a better person for his presence in my life. I last saw Brother Gus in 2016 during the annual St. Bernard Bloomin' Festival. As always, we had a wonderful visit, and it is fitting that the visit took place in the Grotto gift shop. Rest in eternal Peace, Brother Gus !!
Joeandsharon Prince I wish I could have been there this afternoon, Work schedule and higher gas prices took that away. When I got married in the abbey church we later took pictures in the grotto in my wedding gown, he willingly agreed for us to do that. I made it a priority to supply Gus over the years with home hand cookies. Now I'll keep the tradition alive with the rest of the abbey.
Jim Harris I was blessed to know Brother Gus since our time together in the dorm in 1979 as we tried to ride herd on the boys. I never missed a chance to visit when back on the campus. He was a friend whom I shall truly miss. His service this afternoon was a fitting celebration.
Walter Gresham Cantley Goodbye my friend, may God receive you gently into His arms. Thank you for letting me count you as one of my friends for the last fifty years. I was blessed to know you through college and for the better part of my life and know of the kind and gentle nature you had. Rest in Peace my friend.
Julia Kinyon Small in stature, but a giant in heart! Thank you God for the gift of Br. Augustine! May he Rest eternally in Your Peace.
Gregory Carl Faulkner A beautiful tribute! What a blessing to have known Br. Gus! May the Lord make his memory to be eternal in the Kingdom of God!
Joeandsharon Prince US National Weather Service Huntsville Alabama, we lost a saint in the weather observer department. I meet Gus in 1978 while a student.
Pat Ashe Sitting here in a little bungalow on the lower slopes of Glastonbury Tor 4000 miles away from St Bernard, and weeping with both loss and joy at this obituary. Thank you for writing and posting it! "There is where I want to be."
Barry Grecu Such a beautiful life so fully lived. Rest In Peace, Brother Gus.

Brian Reddy I will always remember him at the front of the grotto. Such a dear, truly, kind man. So generous of thought and action. Brother Gus embodied the Benedictine spirit, and the Benedictine example of true humility He was a dear man and an example of that humility at it's best,... to all of us. Brian Reddy, St. Bernard College. '71
Danielle O'Donnell Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord, And let the perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Prayers for you all. He surely will be missed.
Tim Creekmore I first met Gus when I was in seminary at St Bernard in 1966. I left there in 1969 and since then Gus has been a faithful correspondent. Last time I saw him was in May 2001 on my way to move to Florida. Always felt close to him. He will always be in my prayers and in my heart. A good friend and a wonderful model of a monk. God will bless him.
Tom Gagliano I first met Br. Augustine when I entered St. Bernard Seminary in September 1960. We became very close friends over the years and have stayed in touch throughout all these years. During the past fifteen years we would attend the Holy Saturday Vigil and we would visit Bro. Gus after the Liturgy and would talk and recall many happy shared experiences. Let us never forget this humble servant of God. Your days of suffering have ended. You have now entered the presence of God for all eternity. We now will pray to you. God bless you until we meet again.
DeKarlos Blackmon This is absolutely heartbreaking! Our venerable brother always took the time to write to me and encourage me regardless of the leadership roles I've taken on nationally and internationally. May he rest in sweet mercy of God after a full life of service to Christ, church, and community!
Julieta Cabezas Saborio Brother Gus was unique. Always gentle, funny, willing to listen and share wise advice. May he rest in peace. Descansa en Paz al lado de Nuestro Padre Celestial.
Mary Dorris I was thinking about him all week. I will miss him. Brother Gus always helped me when I was at the gift shop or asked for help via mail. May he Rest In Peace. Thank you Brother Gus for being such a wonder person person.

Lola McGourty I am very thankful in Pensacola, FL. We were not touched by Hurricane Irma except for one day of brisk winds. My first cousin in Sarasota did ride out the storm at a friend's but her double wide is now inhabitable--just will need to replace the carport cover. With her power fully on, she is very grateful.
M O'Shea Butler Continued prayers for everyone in Texas,and Louisiana, as well as, folks in Oregon, battling the wildfires..
DeKarlos Blackmon Thank you for the prayers and blessings!!
