A Day of Rededication to Mission

Feast of the Presentation of the Lord

Praying for the World with JOY in HOPE and in FAITH

Redemptoristine Nuns are a praying presence on six continents. In prayer and Liturgy, in the Eucharist and the Sacraments we speak words of love and praise and petition for all people. In the tradition of St. Alphonsus de Liguori, we remember in a special way the poorest of the poor and the most abandoned. We pray for an end to violence of all kinds, for all efforts on behalf of peace and justice, for the sick and the dying, the outcasts and the exiled. We pray for our Church and all her ministers, that they be Christ in the world.

In the tradition of our foundress, Maria Celeste Crostarosa, we pray to become that "living memory of Christ" for each other in our monastic communities and for our families, friends and benfactors and for those we meet in the ordinariness of life, at the doctor's office or the line at the supermarket.
