November 14th: Redemptorist Missionary Vocation Day


“This year, the Day of the Redemptorist Missionary Vocation coincides with the Fifth World Day of the Poor proclaimed by Pope Francis. Rather than distracting from our Redemptorist day of prayer, this happy coincidence reminds us that at the heart of our missionary vocation are the poor, the abandoned, and the marginalized. As Pope Francis reminds us in his message, the poor evangelize us and call us to conversion. In this way, we grow in fidelity to our charism and become more authentic and prophetic witnesses to the Redeemer today. This in turn will make our missionary vocation more attractive to men and women discerning their own call in life.” (Read the entire Message by Father Michael Brehl, Superior General of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer)
