Who are the Redemptorists?
Two thousand years ago Jesus said, “He sent me to preach the Good News to the poor.” Since 1732 the Redemptorists have followed in His footsteps, preaching the Word and serving the poor and most abandoned. Our congregation of missionary priests and brothers was founded by St. Alphonsus Liguori. Like the first Apostles, our mission—and our joy—is bringing the message of salvation to all people. As Redemptorists, we have a special devotion to crib, cross, Mary, and the Eucharist. To learn more, explore our website and connect with us on Google+, Facebook, and Twitter.

Brother Auguiste, thank you for your writing! I share an experience with the Rabbi. I arrived to Puerto Rico in 1954 and visited the Catholic Church for the first time. As soon as I saw Virgin Mary's statue in the church I asked my aunt about her. (I had been going to a Methodist Church in Va., where my father and I were born and where his greatgrandfather had built the old Method Church where he was Pastor.) My aunt told me about Virgin Maruy and the devotion to the Mother of God. I continued to go to mass and finally, when I was 15 years old my father allowed me to change my religious profession to Catholic. My sisters and I were baptized on the same day and received the Body of Christ for the same time. Since then and many years afterwards I studied to become a Catechist, a teacher to help form new Catechists; then evangelized together with my husband and the CSsR's in Puerto Rico and worked at the Retreat House as a Volunteer for retreats and spiritual workshops; a Master's Degree in Biblical Theology, Masters in Pastoral, and counselor. Praised be the Lord JESUS, our Redeemer and Saviour and Mother Mary of Perpetual Help. I am proud and honored to be part of the Redemptorist family where I have met so many living saints. I, now, work as a Catechist taching 4th grade in Orlando, Fl. Praised be the Lord! May God bless you and continue to inspire you in your writings! Sheila Ballard de Graziani
