Speaking of young people...

Congratulations to the Transalpine Redemptorists (the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer): two new deacons, Brother Yousef Marie and Brother Magdala Maria, were ordained yesterday in the chapel of the Seminary of Our Lady of Guadalupe (Nebraska), of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter, in which they pursue their studies.
