Four saints and Fifteen Blesseds* – these are the numbers of Redemptorists who have been given the glorious title of Saint and Blessed in Heaven by the Church andphoto-saints held as models for Catholics to emulate in their faith journey on earth. St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori, founder of the Redemptorist Order, often exhorted his fellow Redemptorists to be saints. His brothers in the Congregation took his words to heart and hence there is ever-growing line of saintly men who followed the teachings of Christ the Redeemer so closely that their lives have become entwined with His love.

*(Beatification is the third of the four steps in the canonization process. A person who is beatified is in English given the title “Blessed”.)
