Do you or someone you know suffer from the pain of arthritis? St. Alphonsus Maria Liguori, founder of the Redemptorists, knows that pain. He himself suffered from severe arthritis for the last forty years of his life. The disease left him permanently bent forward and confined to a wheelchair. Upon his canonization, he was declared one of the patron saints of arthritis sufferers.
To celebrate St. Alphonsus’ feast day, August 1, I and my fellow Redemptorists are offering our 6th Annual Blessing for Arthritis Sufferers.
Fast approaching is the 150th Jubilee of Pope Pius IX entrusting the icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help to the Redemptorists, with the mission to “make her known”!
Celebrate with Redemptorists worldwide who are carrying the Gospel to the poorest and most abandoned, connecting people to Jesus through Mary.
In the love of Our Mother,
Brother Daniel Korn, C.Ss.R.
