At the beginning of the foundation of the most Holy Redeemer, Saint Alphonsus of Liguori, ardently wished to be established in the Orient, in this land of which much saints, prophets and even Christ pressed the land. But, the circumstances did not allow the realization of this wish. Now, this wish is on the way to be carried out. More especially as a Lebanese redemptorist Father Elie Sader, answering the call of the Lord, knowing well his country, his Eastern mentality, his culture, his faith, his needs, was very indicated to begin a community in Bekaa formerly so Christian. The events dispersed the Christians, they remain attached to their ground of origin. To give again confidence, to energize the area, especially to help the young people to lean on their faith, and to help the Christians to find their roots, a center missionary is the response to their aspirations.
