Hello all! My patron saints and the great God himself continually suprise me along my journey! My patron, B. Fr. Seelos, has silently guided my heart to inquire about the Redemptorists congregation. I have recently contacted the vocation director for the Denver Province of North America. I have also talked to some good friends of mine at the Seelos Shrine in New Orleans. The ambition I feel burning in my heart is to put on the habit of my patron. The Redemptorist Congregation was started by St. Alphonsus Liguori in 1732. The Congregation is a missionary order aimed at giving Parish missions, retreats for religious and clerics, school training in seminaries and high schools, and mission work in various third-world countries. Reading the biography of Fr. Seelos, I was prompted to further investigate the life of the Redemptorists. I will continue in prayer though in hopes that God will lead me to whatever he desires. Please remeber me in your prayers!
