You may have to click the middle to start the video.

Here is something to cheer you up during this pandemic - from Brazil to Dublin to Cork the Redemptoristines and Redemptorists take on the “Jesursalema” Challenge. Well done to all. Enjoy, and pray for our world in these challenging times.


"I never thought people would be dancing to my song in the United States of America." This song became a worldwide hit after a viral TikTok dance challenge. South African DJ and musician Master KG tells us the origins of “Jerusalema” : “The lyrics of the “Jerusalema” song are in the Zulu language and express our longing for heaven and for God’s loving presence in our lives. They implore God to walk with us, guard us and express our prayer.”
