Redemptorists abroad

Although not at home, we thought it might be of some interest to you to hear of some recent activities of the Transalpine Redemptorists abroad. Recently Rev Fr Anthony Mary, C.SS.R., went with Br Dominic Mary, C.SS.R. and Br Martin Mary, C.SS.R. to the Unites States, where Rev Fr Anthony Mary spoke at the annual Catholic Family News conference in Cleveland, Ohio.


Father joined nine other top class speakers including John Vennari, Fr Patrick Perez, Michael Matt and Dr. David Allan White. The conference was commemorating the centenary of Pope St. Pius X’s landmark anti-modernist encyclical, Pascendi. Rev Fr Anthony Mary spoke on the subject of saving your soul amidst the present crisis. Just as Father was talking about the importance of being aware of the presence of Angels and Devils all around us, the fire alarms were mysteriously triggered in the conference room, disrupting the conference quite considerably. However, all Satan managed to achieve was a few extra decades of the rosary, recited by all 210 members of the audience, while they waited for the alarms to be shut down. The large number of people attending made this the most successful Catholic Family News conference yet. We hope that every one present received many graces and renewed strength to keep up the combat for the Faith.

Don't you think Satan is only symbolic?

I was most happy to meet Father Anthony and the Brothers during their all-too brief stay in Buffalo, NY before departing for the conference.

May the small but fervent communities of Papa Stronsay and Christchurch be God's chosen instruments, that joined with the help of Our Lady, they may be the cause of the salvation of many, many souls amid this present crisis!
