|May Nations Win Your Saving Grace|
O Christ, Redeemer of Mankind was first published by the National Office of the Apostleship of Prayer and the Eucharistic Crusade, Dindigul India. There are approximately 20 million Catholics in India today. The Catholic Church has a long history in India, going back to St. Francis Xavier and other Jesuit missionaries in the 16th century, and even to the Tradition which relates St. Thomas spreading the Gospel there during the Apostolic Age. The Church in India has been blessed with such large numbers entering Religious life, that it now sends many Priests and Consecrated Religious to minister to the spiritual needs of the Church throughout the world. O Christ, Redeemer of Mankind is set to the tune, St. Flavian, first published in John Days's Psalter of 1562. In the Liturgy of the Hours it is used on the Feast of the Sacred Heart.
