The Greatness of Mary's Love for Us

Fr. David Purcell, CSsR
Edmonton-Toronto Redemptorists:

We know how much a mother can love her child, a child of her own flesh. Yet, each of us have experienced the impatience and limits of our own mothers. Mary reaches out to us through the Spirit of Love. Mary carries a pure love for us that never fades, is never irritable, but is always patient
and always kind, and endures forever.

An Invitation to a Vocation

Fr. David Purcell, CSsR
Edmonton-Toronto Redemptorists:

In the songs to which you listen, the tweets and hash tags exchanged among friends, in the text messages you send and receive - you are not too likely to hear this invitation. So I simply say to you, please consider being a priest, a deacon, a brother or a sister.

What is a Redemptorist?

Fr. David Purcell, CSsR
Edmonton-Toronto Redemptorists:

Let's listen again to St. Alphonsus who has inspired us for over 240 years: "My dear Redemptorists, the main thing I urge for you is the love of Jesus Christ. We are so strongly impelled to love him. This is the reason we have been chosen from all eternity and called to this Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer."

Mary, A Light to the Nations

Fr. David Purcell, CSsR

There is St. Alphonsus who shows us his close personal friendship with Mary in writing "The Glories of Mary," St. Eugene de Mazenod who dedicated his life and the lives of many others as Oblates of Mary Immaculate, Blessed Anne Marie Rivier who was healed through the intercession of Mary and then
gave birth to the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary..... and the list goes on and on.
