Memorial of Redemptorist

Blessed Kaspar
Stanggassinger, CSsR

Teacher of

Today the Redemptorist/Redemptoristine family honors the memory of a faithful priest who died too young. He is quoted as saying, " The saints have a special intuition. For me, who am not a saint, what is important are the simple truths; the Incarnation, the Redemption and the Holy Eucharist." Kaspar Stanggassinger was proclaimed blessed by Pope John Paul II on April 24, 1988. Follow the link to the international Redemptorist website. Go to MENU and click on Beatified Redemptorists and go to Stanggassinger. A more direct link to his page did not do the job so you have to work a bit. The website is very well constructed and informative for those with the time and interest to prowl around. Perhaps you will be inspired to pray for the intention of the Redemptorists' upcoming international General Chapter. They would be grateful for your support.


Almighty and eternal God, who gave Blessed Kaspar the grace to announce the faith with joy and to dedicate himself to the formation of candidates for the priesthood, grant, through his intercession that we may follow his example and become cooperators of the divine Redeemer in word and deed. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever. Amen.
