Greetings and invitation to cooperation

Dear Confreres and Friends,

Let me first introduce myself to you. My name is Fr. Grzegorz Ruszaj. I am Redemptorist, from the Province of Warsaw. I studied media education at the Faculty of Theology of the John Paul II Catholic University in Lublin, Poland. In recent years I have worked as secretary of the Province in Warsaw.

What happened on November 9, 1732?

On Saturday, November 9, 2019,  we celebrate the 287th anniversary of our Congregation. Inspired by God and guided by the Holy Spirit, St. Alphonsus Liguori and his companions gathered in Scala and dedicated their lives to follow Jesus the Redeemer as he preaches Good News to the poor. Today, we give thanks to God for our vocation to continue this mission as prophetic witnesses to the Redeemer.

November 6: Memory of the Redemptorists Martyrs of Cuenca, Spain

On November 6, the Redemptorist Family celebrates the memory of the six Martyrs of Cuenca. Faithful to their call to witness to the Redeemer, they gave their lives during a time of civil war. Our world continues to be wounded by violence and division – political, social, religious. In solidarity with these blessed Martyrs, our brothers may be live as prophetic witnesses of the Redeemer who gave his life to reconcile all people, and to unite us as members of the family of God.

The Martyrs

Fr. Michael Brehl: “Pope Francis is an example of the spirit of Saint Alfonsus”

The nearly 5,000 members that make up the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer are currently present in more than 80 countries in the world. “The situation is different in each continent,” explains, superior general, Fr. Michael Brehl, to New Life. While in Asia there is a moment of great growth due to the increase in the number of vocations, in Europe and North America the vocations are declining. “There are many older confreres and few young,” he says. Meanwhile, in Latin America, the numbers remain stable.
