Redemptorists praying for the people of Poland

From our provincial, Very Rev. Patrick Woods, C.Ss.R.:

The confreres of the Baltimore Province express our deepest sympathy and extend the promise of prayers to our Polish confreres working in New Jersey, Maryland, Chicago, St Croix, and the Virgin Islands as they mourn the tragedy that has befallen their nation in the plane crash that took the lives of their President and First Lady, as well as so many other national leaders.

We also express our prayerful condolences to our confreres in the Warsaw Province with whom we have shared a deep bond of solidarity for many years. In their own grief, they will be struggling to bring the comfort of faith to the people they so faithfully serve.

May God give eternal rest to those who have died, and may both the Polish confreres and their people find hope in Our Most Holy Redeemer and the Easter promise of eternal life.
