PRAY FOR US
Alphonsus Liguori was an Italian bishop, spiritual writer, composer, musician, artist, poet, lawyer, scholastic philosopher, and theologian. He founded the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer, known as the Redemptorists, in 1732. A prolific writer, he published nine editions of his Moral Theology in his lifetime, in addition to other devotional and ascetic works and letters. Among his best known works are The Glories of Mary and The Way of the Cross, the latter still used in parishes during Lenten devotions.
St. Alphonsus is more than just a parish down the street. This founder of the Redemptorists had a great influence on many souls in Italy that has spread throughout the world.
St Alphonsus Liguori was born on the 27 September 1696 in Naples, Italy. He is well known for establishing the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer, known today as the Redemptorists. His preaching was simple, clear and direct and he was gentle and understanding in the confessional. Alphonsus later became Bishop and was an outstanding theologian who worked through many trails and tribulations during his time. St Alphonsus Liguori died on the 1st August 1787 in Nocera, Italy and was canonised by Pope Gregory XVI in 1839. He was declared a Doctor of the Church in 1871 and is the patron saint for artritis.
The wisdom of St. Alphonsus Liguori.
Dr. Tom Curran talks about the call for renewal in the Church through reparation and shares more insights from the book, Preparation for Death by St. Alphonsus de Liguori. Tom reflects on the shortness of life, the most important moment of life, life as training for death, and more.
The four last things. Do you ever think about your death? Are you afraid of the coming judgment? Do you ponder heaven and fear hell? Father Tim Grumbach joins Trending with Timmerie to discuss the four last things. They'll pull from the works of St. Alphonsus Liguori & the Catechism of the Catholic Church paragraph 1005-1041.
