Feast of St. Aphonsus Mary Ligouri


Greetings, prayers and good wishes to our Redemptorist brothers and sisters on the feast of their founder, St. Alphonsus Mary Ligouri.

St. Alphonsus was known above all as a practical man who dealt in the concrete rather than the abstract. His life is indeed a “practical” model of the everyday Christian who has difficulty recognising the dignity of Christian life amid the swirl of problems, pains, misunderstanding and failure. Alphonsus suffered all these things. He is a saint because he was able to maintain an intimate sense of the presence of the suffering Christ through it all. (Saint of the Day, Leonard Foley, OFM Editor, p. 182)
