The Redemptorist Missionary
“Strong in faith, rejoicing in hope, burning with charity, on fire with zeal, in humility of heart and persevering in prayer, Redemptorists as apostolic men and genuine disciples of Saint Alphonsus follow Christ the Redeemer with hearts full of joy: denying themselves and always ready to understake what is demanding, they share in the mystery of Christ and proclaim it in Gospel simplicity of life and language, that they may bring to people plentiful redemption.”
From Constitution No. 20
Perhaps more than ever before, there is a need for people who can proclaim courageously the Good News of hope, love and reconciliation in a world where there is so much greed, violence, hopelessness and selfishness.
The Redemptorists in Africa & Madagascar make a very significant contribution in this area.
