"O God, give me holiness!"
"Our daily prayer for you is: ‘that your charity may more and more abound in knowledge and in all understanding that you may approve the better things: that you may be sincere and without offence until the day of Christ, replenished with the fruit of justice, through Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.’ May the Divine Mother and her son bless you all."
— Neumann’s first pastoral letter, Easter, 1852
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.
