Background on Saint Alphonsus
from Various Sources
Painstakingly Devout, from Italian Parents, Alphonsus was Scrupulously Steeped-in the Fear-of-God.
Alphonsus Founded and Established the Redemptorist Religious Order. Father Liguori is also the Patron-of Confessors and Moral Theologians. He is an
Exemplary Model-for Canon Lawyers, Theologians and Bishops. Alphonsus is a most-Distinguished, Catholic Doctor-of-the-Church, in matters-of
Morality, because of his Absolute Surrender-to God in
Faith and his Conscience.
He was always Humble and Docile-to the
Movements-of Grace. He allowed this to Draw his Heart and Mind. His
Conscience was Formed and Fixed-on the Love-of
God, Neighbor and the Church. He was absolutely Consumed-with Zeal for
Souls and he Poured himself out Daily, Practicing what he Believed.
His Book, 'The-Glories-of-Mary', is a Masterpiece. His Writings are Clear, Profound, and Reveal Great Scholarship and Erudition. No one
could possibly say anything-more in Quantity, about Mary, than Mary
herself. The Plethora-of Modern Day Seers, Visionaries, Writers and Mystics, Reveal Mary.
Mary's Discourse-to them, only Compliments, what Alphonsus has 'Already' said. Saint Alphonsus Liguori is a
Must-read, for any Serious Explorer-of Mary. He is without-Doubt, the Marian
Doctor Par-excellence. Other Doctors have Written similar 'Qualitative' Things about Mary,
but he added a 'Quantitative' Component. Comparisons are always Odious, before-God, and we know that
the 'Greatest' is the 'Least', in God's Kingdom.
Alphonsus lived-to his Nineties, Vowing never to-Squander a Precious
Moment due-to God, either in Praying, Writing, Preaching Missions, Visiting-the-Sick, Pastoring
his Flock as Bishop, and Giving Retreats. He unendingly-Implores us to Visit the Blessed Sacrament, our
Redeemer, and to Live-out God's Holy Will, and obtain
Salvation and Redemption through
Jesus, in Union-with His Mother,
His Devotion-to Mary, he Claimed, Helped him
Discover God, and his Vocation, Anew. His Devotion-to
Jesus and Mary, his Brilliant Writings, his Paintings-of
Mary, his Holiness and his Role-as the Founder-of the
Redemptorists, has Ensured his Place-in God's Church.
