Br Mike CSsR and the Most Holy Redeemer...

Solemnity of the Most Holy Redeemer - 2017...

ossr redeemer cssr

 

OSsR - The Most Holy Redeemer - CSsR

From the CSsR Constitution 23.

Since the members are called to continue the presence of Christ and his mission of redemption in the world, they choose the person of Christ as the centre of their life, and strive day by day to enter ever more intimately into personal union with him. Thus, at the heart of the community, to form it and sustain it, is the Redeemer himself and his Spirit of love. And the closer their union with Christ, the stronger will become their union with each other.

 

We the Redemptorists of the London Province -

Provincial's Letter - July 2017...

provincialsletterhead1st July, 2017

Dear Confreres and friends,

How rapidly the month of June has passed and we are now into July - the month traditionally dedicated to the Precious Blood. For us Redemptorists of course, the principal feast this month is that of the Most Holy Redeemer which is celebrated on the third Sunday of July - this year on 16th July. On this day where it is possible we have a common renewal of vows, although I appreciate that in the parish setting and in the holiday season this is not always possible.

During the month of June many apostolic works and missions took place as well as the Novenas in honour of our Mother of Perpetual Help. I mention in particular the Nine Days Prayer at Clapham which was conducted by Father Charles Corrigan and our Students. From all accounts, the sharing of the word of God was very well received. 

What's in a name?

Homily by Fr. Andrew Burns C.Ss.R on the Feast of Our Mother of Perpetual Succour 27th June 2017 at Bishop Eton Liverpool.

Last night talking to Fr Casey, I told him Fr. Tim has asked me to preach tonight and Fr Casey’s comment was “tell them that she is Our Lady of Perpetual Succour – not Our Mother of Perpetual Help”. Perhaps he would be more insistent here in the presence of Bishop Ralph, because in the diocese of Hallam and of Leeds the title of our Icon has changed again to “Our Mother of Unfailing Help”.

Should we refer to Mary as Our Lady or our Mother?

Our CSsR Ukrainian Martyrs...

We remember these brave and herioc men today on their feast day!

Let us pray for the Church in Ukraine today.

Prayer in Honour of the Redemptorist Ukrainian Martyrs

O Lord, our God, you call all to believe in you and to follow in your way. We thank you for the grace you gave to Nicholas Charnetsky, Vasyl Velchkovsky, Zenon Kovalyk and Ivan Ziatyk and to all their spiritual companions, such that they were able to pay the ultimate price of faithfulness to you in giving their lives.

We thank you for glorifying them in your heavenly kingdom, that they may be for all of us a shining example of your powerful presence in our lives. We pray that you give us the grace of faithfulness and generosity as we seek you respond to your love. Through their intercession, help us always to stand firm in the Truth and be faithful to you and your commandments.

O Holy Mother of God and our Mother of Perpetual Help, lead us to your Son, Jesus. Give us the courage to follow him always. We place ourselves under your protection.

For all the glory and honour belong to you, Almighty Father, Eternal Son, and Life-giving Spirit, now and for ever and ever. Amen

New Apostolic Nuncio - A CSsR Welcome!...

Some of our men, particularly our Fr Provincial, Ronald McAinsh CSsR

knew Archbishop Adams when he was the Nuncio in Zimbabwe.

Archbishop Adams is the Titular Bishop of Scala,

the place, above the Amalfi coast in Italy, where the Redemptorists were founded.

God bless your Ministry, Archbishop Adams!

31st May, 2017

Dear Confreres and friends,

This evening I celebrated Mass in Clapham with sixteen other confreres present (of seven nationalities) during which I invested Bro. Christopher Reynolds with our Redemptorist habit, and also conferred on him the ministries of lector and acolyte. At the same ceremony Bro. Massimiliano Mura received the ministry of acolyte.

Both ceremonies are important rites of passage in terms of the formation programme, but also are a sign of brotherhood and solidarity among us all. Please continue to pray for those in formation and ask the Lord to send good vocations to our Province and Region.

CSsR Clothing with the Habit...

Wednesday evening, on the Feast of the Visitation, was a very special occasion for our community here  in Clapham as one of our brothers (Br Chris Reynolds) was clothed in the Redemptorist Habit. He also received the ministries of Lector and Acolyte, while another brother (Br Max Mura CSsR) also received the ministry of Acolyte. See the photos below...
