Description

Saint Alphonsus de Liguori (1696-1787), Doctor of the Church, was a legal savant who was awarded a double doctorate in law at the age of sixteen. Born into a noble Italian family, St. Alphonsus soon abandoned his legal career to care for the poor and ill of Naples. In 1732 he founded a new missionary society, the "Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer" ( the "Redemptorists"). His literary career, surprisingly, did not begin until he was nearly fifty, but from that point on, his pen was never at rest, composing an unfathomable 111 works on areas covering apologetics, ecclesiastical discipline, dogmatic theology, ascetical theology, and moral theology-this last he was most known for. This present book draws from many of St. Alphonsus's works, in a user-friendly "a-thought-a-day" format. Readable as well as humane and likeable, St. Alphonus Liguori is a saint relevant to the current human condition.
