Aug. 1, 2018 (Memorial of St. Alphonsus Liguori)

Today, we honor the founder of the Redemptorists, St. Alphonsus Liguori. By 17, he had earned doctorates in civil and canon law! He was later ordained. The motto of the Redemptorists: With God redemption abounds. He opposed the rigors of Jansenism. Many of us grew up using his meditations on the Way of the Cross. Made a Doctor of the Church.
