“Reverend Father Michael Brehl,
Superior General of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer.
On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Blessed Pius IX entrusting of the Icon of Our Lady of Perpetual Help to your Institute, the Holy Father hopes that this significant event will awaken a renewed and authentic devotion to the Holy Virgin, stirring the entire religious family and all who share in its charism to offer an ever more effective evangelical witness. With these wishes, His Holiness invokes, through the intercession of the Mother of the Redeemer, abundant heavenly graces, and sends the Apostolic Blessing.
From the Vatican, December 11, 2015
Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Papal Secretary of State”
