Product description

"Here, then," says St. Alphonsus, "is our heaven on earth--the Most Blessed Sacrament." St. Alphonsus provides us with great instruction and inspiration on the worship of our Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament. In "Visits to the Blessed Sacrament," he offers 31 "visits"--consisting of prayers, a Scripture reading, and a meditation to spur our own meditation and prayer to the Lord--the perfect tool to help facilitate a fruitful visit to our Lord in the Eucharist. Each visit to our Lord is followed by a "Visit to Our Lady," short meditations and prayers confidently beseeching her powerful help, even for the worst of sinners. At each visit, one makes an "Act of Spiritual Communion," which enflames one's heart with greater love of God and desire to be unified with Him. This book also includes prayers that may be prayed in Adoration, and the formula for Benediction following Adoration. A perennial favorite among Catholic prayer books, "Visits to the Blessed Sacrament" remains a famous and beloved aid to growth in love and devotion to that essential part of our Faith--our God Himself, dwelling among us in the Eucharist.

Author information

St. Alphonsus Liguori was born in 1696 to Neapolitan nobility at Marianella, Italy. He became a recognizable lawyer after going through law school at the age of sixteen, but later decided to leave law in favor of giving his salvation more attention. Alphonsus joined the Oratory of St. Philip Neri as a seminarian and was ordained in 1726, when he was thirty. The homilies he gave had the special ability of converting those who had fallen away from the faith. He also founded the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer, and authored such works as "The Glories of Mary," "The True Spouse of Jesus Christ," "Attaining Salvation," "The Blessed Virgin Mary," "Preparation for Death Abridged," "What Will Hell Be Like?," "The Twelve Steps to Holiness and Salvation," and "The Way of the Cross." After being a bishop for over a decade, St. Alphonsus Liguori died on the first of August, 1787. He was canonized by Pope Gregory XVI in 1839, and declared a Doctor of the Church in 1871. His feast is celebrated on August 1.
