    The Provincial writes, July 2014...




    29th July, 2104

    Dear confreres and friends,


    All good wishes for the feast of St. Alphonsus. Although the language used in many of his writings is difficult for today, the sentiments behind them remain powerful in our Church and the society in which we live. I hope we can all continue to be challenged by his passionate love of Jesus Christ, his spirit and his charism.

    Bishop Ralph Heskett CSsR Homily Installation Mass...


    Homily for Installation


    Before I begin the homily I would like to thank you, the priests, religious and lay faithful for your warm welcome to the diocese of Hallam.  In particular, I would like to thank all those who wrote to me when the announcement of my appointment was made, welcoming with an assurance of prayers.  Many of those who wrote offered words of encouragement, too, informing me of all the things I could look forward to when I arrived in Hallam, - the many places of interest to visit, some of local customs etc.  One particular custom mentioned by someone born in Sheffield and now living in exile in the north-west caught my eye and I am looking forward to trying it for myself and I quote:


    “No self-respecting Sheffield home would be without Henderson’s Relish, a slightly spicy black vinegar based product use on savoury pies and fish and chips.” Something to look forward to……..

    Provincial's Letter June 2014...


    27th June, 2014

    Dear Confreres and friends,


    Today we celebrate the two great feasts of The Sacred Heart of Jesus and also Our Lady of Perpetual Help, and tomorrow our Ukrainian Martyrs. I know that in all our communities the Novena for Our Lady has been celebrated, and I hope to be in Clapham on Sunday evening for the final night of the Nine Days Prayer. All good wishes for these three feasts which have a particularly Redemptorist flavour to them.

    Fr General CSsR writes - June 2014...





    Superior Generalis

    Prot. No. 0000 134/2014

    Roma, June 27, 2014

    “Jesus said to his mother, ‘Woman, here is your son.’

    Then he said to the disciple, ‘Here is your mother.’

    And from that hour the disciple took her into his own home.”

    (John 19:26-27)


    Dear Confreres, Sisters, Associates and friends,


    Greetings from Rome as we celebrate the Feast of Our Mother of Perpetual Help. Like the beloved disciple, we have welcomed Mary into our homes and into our hearts. We “relate to her as a mother with all the love and veneration [we] owe her as sons [and daughters].” (Cons. 32).


    The Gospel passage above is taken from the Liturgy for this feast day. It is powerful and moving. From the Cross, as Jesus pours out his life for us, he speaks these words. As Pope Francis reminds us in Evangelii Gaudium (No. 285), “these words of the dying Jesus are not chiefly the expression of his devotion and concern for his mother; rather, they are a revelatory formula which manifests the mystery of a special saving mission.” Jesus gives his mother a mission – to be the maternal expression of God’s love and tenderness for all people.
