Year of Faith

Today, we commemorate one of the treasures of the Church, a Bishop and Doctor of the Church, a master of Moral Theology. He lived a long life, dying at the ripe old age of 91. He lived during a time of real decline in the Church, and, as a result, the culture of Europe also declined. He died in the year 1787, near Naples, surrounded by sons in the faith. They were drawn to live radically for Jesus through his holy witness of life, his profound preaching, and his inspired writings on the Christian life. This treasure was St. Alphonsus Liguori, the founder of the Redemptorist community. He is particularly known for his deep love for Mary, the Mother of the Lord.
