Celebrate Our Mother of Perpetual Help!
On last year’s Feast of Our Mother of Perpetual Help, the Redemptorists began a year-long
celebration commemorating the restoration of the icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help to public
Throughout this year of jubilee, Redemptorists around the world have honored Mary with new prayers
and devotions to the Mother of God, our Perpetual Help. As we go forward from this jubilee
celebration, we add to past devotions the veneration of the Icon as an instrument for preaching the
Redemptive Love of Jesus.
Thank you for your love for Mary the Mother of God and for your prayers and generous support. I
invite you to join with us in making her known in the years to come.
Pray with me on this feast day, that the good work begun by the Redemptorists in faithful response
to the mandate from the Holy Father, may continue with new enthusiasm. Join me and my fellow
Redemptorists throughout the world as we pray:
“Mother of Perpetual Help your glory we celebrate.
Your Icon we venerate.
Work new signs and wonders among us.
O Holy Mother of God, Show us Christ your Son. Amen!”
In Jesus through Mary,
Bro. Dan Korn, C.Ss.R.
