"Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer"

A letter from the Transalpine Redemptorists to their friends has announced that from 2 August, they will use the new name for their Congregation: "Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer" The Latin name will be (Filii Sanctissimi Redemptoris) and the siglum will follow this: "F. SS. R." (Cf. No more servants, but sons. (Gal. IV:7))

The letter offers a brief legal clarification:
Our new name has been worked out in consultation with the Holy See but, as with all things of this nature, we can only say that the name will be absolutely finalised when the community's statutes are approved. This is normal proceedure.
It continues with an explanation of the new name and the affirmation that they continue to claim St Alphonsus as their spiritual father.
