Fr Provincial's Letter June 2018...



29th June 2018,

Dear Confreres and friends,

All good wishes on this feast of Saints Peter and Paul. I know it is the ordination anniversary of quite a few of the brethren. Also best wishes for tomorrow for the feast of Blessed Januarius Sarnelli; and of course yesterday we celebrated the Ukrainian Martyrs. So there is a plethora of celebrations.


I understand that the Novenas and Triduums in Clapham, Liverpool and Birmingham were all well attended. Many thanks to Fr. Tim Buckley who single-handedly preached the Novena in Clapham, to Fr. Charlie and Bros. Mike and Royston who preached in Liverpool, and to Fr. Peter for his work in Birmingham.

multi onseethroughFrTimCSsRIn the run-up to Adoremus 2018, the Maryton Carmelite convent in Liverpool is running a series of talks. on the 27th May Fr Tim Buckley C.Ss.R was honoured to speak on the Eucharist and St Alphonsus. So that you may get a flavour of his talk the majority is reproduced below

Last weekend at the Royal Wedding in Windsor we had a remarkable demonstration of the power of the preached Word of God. I cannot remember a Christian sermon receiving such universal acclaim across the religious, political and social spectrums. And for me, what was most striking was the simplicity of the message, going to the heart of the Gospel of love. Bishop Michael Curry had been flown in especially for the occasion and some suggested that he stole the show and was the ‘man of the match’.

Pray for Vocations to the Priesthood and/or Religious Life


Fr Provincial's Letter 30th May 2018...


30th May 2018

Dear Confreres and friends,

As we move into the month of June we remember this is traditionally a month devoted to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. St. Alphonsus, living in the mainstream of the French Oratarian school of Saint John Eudes, Cardinal Berule and the Jesuits, was steeped in this devotion. On 14th June we celebrate the feast of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus which is always held to be a Redemptorist feast, but seems less popular in this age.

When Pope Leo XIII celebrated the Diamond Jubilee of his priesthood the Catholics of the world had a collection for him. He used the donations for the building of the church which we staff at San Gioacchino near the Vatican where this devotion continues with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament each day. Leo's encyclical Annum Sacrum emphasises devotion to the Sacred Heart and to the Eucharist. So happy Corpus Christi also.

In England and Wales we are building up to the ecclesial event of "Adoremus". Redemptorist Publications has produced much material on the Eucharist for this event. Many confreres have contributed and my little booklet on the Visits to the Blessed Sacrament adapted from St. Alphonsus, is now available for parishes and individuals.
