August 1, 2017 (Memorial of St. Alphonsus Ligouri)

St. Alphonsus is the patron saint of Moral Theologians and a Doctor of the Church. He is also responsible for many writings in the devotional sphere( I grew up with his version of the Stations of the Cross). He always stressed the love of Christ during the time than Jansenism with its overly strict perspective was running rampant. He knew that rules and regulations had to be seen through the lens of the love and mercy of Christ.
