30th April 2019,

Dear Confreres and friends,

All good wishes for the month of May. When I look back over my letters for this month dedicated to Mary, I see quotations from Alphonsus, Augustine, Newman, Ephraim, Mother Teresa and Popes Benedict and Francis. Let me offer another from the Holy Father for this month - again from Evangelii Guadium (No. 285):

"At the foot of the cross, at the supreme hour of the new creation, Christ led us to Mary. He brought us to her because he did not want us to journey without a mother; and our people read in this maternal image all the mysteries of the gospel. The Lord did not want to leave the Church without this icon of womanhood."

I have another wonderful excerpt from Fr. Hans Urs von Balthaser in his book: "To the Heart of the Mystery of Redemption". I find this quite touching and very, very apposite for the times in which we are living. It is taken from the chapter, 'Mary and the Church in the Redemption,' and you will find it in the fourth section.

FACING THE FUTURE WITH HOPE AND JOY 
+Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap. 
Pontifical College Josephinum, 3.27.19 

I’m glad to be here tonight for two reasons. First, I admire – greatly admire — the Josephinum and the men it produces. The Church needs you because we urgently need more good priests, men of prudence and charity, but also of spine and courage, who understand the changing terrain of our times. In my life, the priesthood has been a deep source of joy and purpose, the gift of knowing with certainty why God made me. But it’s not a life for the weak or the lukewarm. Especially now.

My second reason is this. Cardinal Pio Laghi was a mentor and friend who showed great kindness to me as a young bishop. When you’re a baby bishop, everything is new and a bit intimidating. Cardinal Laghi’s encouragement made a great difference in my life and ministry. He gave me my first zucchetto, pectoral cross, and mitre. I’ve never forgotten the debt I owe him. Delivering these remarks in his name is not just a pleasure, the pleasure of being with you, but also an honor. So let’s begin.

I chose tonight’s theme because it sounds better than “facing the future with confusion and anxiety,” and anger for that matter, because I’m tempted to feel all three of those things a couple of times a week. There are days when everyone in the Church seems angry. Laypeople and priests are angry with their bishops for the abuse scandal, which never seems to end. Bishops are angry with priests for their bad example. And many bishops are also frustrated – to put it gently — with Rome for its unwillingness to acknowledge the real nature and scope of the abuse problem. Clerical privilege is not the problem. Clericalism may be a factor in the sexual abuse of minors, but no parent I know – and I hear from a lot of them – sees that as the main issue. Not naming the real problem for what it is, a pattern of predatory homosexuality and a failure to weed that out from Church life, is an act of self-delusion.

Our OSsR Nuns - The Redemptoristines...

Life lived in God. Is God Calling you?

This is the question asked by our nuns in Dublin. They are an International Order of enclosed Nuns, who are actually our Redemptorist counterparts - praying all the time for the work we do and for the whole Church and the world.

Essentially we work together!

6th April, 2019

Dear Confreres and friends,

Apologies for this monthly letter being late but as you may know I was in Rome attending a meeting of the leaders of all English-speaking groups of the Congregation. I was happy to meet up with Brother Benjamin and with Fr. Gideon Sidinga who is studying spirituality in Rome.

On my return, the OPC immediately began the second round of visits to the communities, and on their behalf I would like to thank you again for your welcome and for your openness and willingness to cooperate with us in attempting to continue to reinvigorate the Province.

We are hoping to publish the Nominations soon after Easter; but of course we still need to hear back from the local bishops in whose dioceses the proposed changes will take place.

At the meeting in Rome, the General Government presented us with the new Plan of Community Life which we hope to present to each of the communities in the coming weeks. As a sign of cooperation, Fr. Dan Baragry, the Provincial Superior of the Dublin Province and I have talked about the possibility of having this printed professionally and shared among the confreres. It will be part of the blueprint for our renewed way of living.

At the meeting, there was also a suggestion that the Provincial Councils of London, Dublin, St. Clements and MunichNienna meet during the summer to see in what manner we can continue to advance the restructuring process in the Congregation. As you can imagine, with a minimum of 12 people we are having a great challenge in finding suitable dates.

London Calling...

What a wonderful few days of Faith here in London, Our Lady's Wanstead to be precise. We are overwhelmed by the people's response to our Redemptorist Mission. 500 - 600 people at evening Services and 200 at the morning mass.
