Preparing for Final Vows...

(Tuchów, Poland) A month preparation for perpetual vows of the Redemptorists of the Conference of Europe began on July 7th 2019 in Lubaszowa, Poland. Altogether 18 Confreres from different countries and continents will spend there in Tuchów for next four weeks renewing their commitment to the Most Holy Redeemer to preach the Gospel to the poor and the most abandoned.

The participants those who joined are from the Province of London (2), Edmonton-Toronto (1), Rome (1), Lviv (1), Warsaw (11 including: 3 students and 9 fathers and 1 brother who completed ten years after their perpetual profession), Vice-province Michalovce (1) and Region Zimbabwe (1).

cssr confreres together

The time of the renewal will be dedicated to lectures, prayer, knowing each other and building of fraternal community. The lectures of the monthly renewal will be presented by the guests speakers

Fr. Johannes Rӧmelt, Fr. Janusz Sok, Fr. Ronald McAinsh

and others who will speak on the following topics:

“Redemptorist: Priest in a century of the challenges”,

“Obedience: how to seek the will of God”,

We hope it will be a time of not only a new portion of knowledge but making new friends as well.

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!

We’ve got a good group of men coming for our #Vocations weekend in March so far, but there’s space for one or two more! If you would like to find out more about the life of a Redemptorist Priest or Brother, get in touch: maybe it’s the life God has planned for you! This email address is being protected from spambots.

...also, if you see this, and you’re a young Catholic man on the internet, dithering and prevaricating about your vocation, then this is 100% Divine Providence telling you to not delay but to take some concrete steps: pray more/talk to your confessor/visit a community or seminary.
