A Whole Lot Of Love

Saint Alphonsus Maria de’ Liguori, C.Ss.R. (27 September 1696 – 1 August 1787), was an Italian Catholic bishop, spiritual writer, composer, musician, artist, poet, lawyer, scholastic philosopher, theologian, and founder of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer.

Saint Alphonsus (1696-1787) practiced law for a time, became a priest, and eventually founded the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer (the Redemptorists). His clear and reasoned thinking — a remnant from his days as a litigator — served him well as a moral theologian. His persuasive and hope-filled preaching drew many to the church. “Has not God in fact won for Himself a claim on all our love?” argued Alphonsus. “From all eternity He has loved us.” Remember to love God back just as much.
