The spiritual director of St. Pio of Pietrelcina, Fr. Benedict of San Marco, once told St. Pio in a letter of spiritual direction that his particular vocation was a "vocation to coredeem" by means of the daily trials, battles, sufferings, and toils coming from the exercise of his ministry.
This is very helpful and confirms my 'take' on the whole co-redemption thing. I think every Xtian is called to co-redeem in some way.
