Do You Remember the Call?

In the steady, loving gaze of our Mother in the Perpetual Help icon we can see that the thoughts and feelings of Christ filled her heart. And she says to us, "I love you, I share your concerns. Let me hold them as I hold my Son. Bring your concerns to me and Jesus will take care of them."

Meet Sr. Moira Quinn, OSsR, Prioress, Redemptoristines of New York and Toronto



Sr. Moira Quinn OSsR is the prioress of the New York-based Redemptoristines. Redemptoristines world- wide are the sister community to the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer, also known as the Redemptorists.

She is the author of Here I Am:

The Life of John the Baptist. (2014).


Book summary: Here I Am is a novel based on the life of John the Baptist. From the moment of his conception to his horrific death, you follow his life as a confused young man searching for his identity, to a man in love with a woman whom he cannot take as a wife, to the prophet who finally becomes the powerful voice of one crying in the wilderness, “Prepare the way!”
John and Jesus are cousins and playmates who gradually become aware of their destinies. One is the son of a priest with all the education and advantages that befit his class, while the other is the son of a lowly carpenter from a small, remote village.
Throughout John’s lifetime five special women help shape his life. All play a role in fulfilling God’s plan of mercy and love.
