St. Alphonsus Liguori is one of the most awe-inspiring figures in the Catholic Church. His 111 books, more than any other author in history, have deeply enriched Catholic thought for centuries and still serve as a source of wisdom and inspiration for modern believers. St. Alphonsus was not just a prolific writer – he was also a bishop, confessor, founder of the Redemptorists, and Doctor of the Church.
His life was marked by incredible achievements and even miracles that could only be attributed to the work of God. He sought to spread the teachings of faith through helping those who were less fortunate while challenging his readers to an encounter with God’s love through constant prayer. Nevertheless, he found time to read every significant book written by others in the history of Catholicism along with writing his own works during his lifetime.
“He who prays will be saved; he who does not will be lost” is a famous quote by St. Alphonsus – but it offers only a sliver of insight into his sprawling intellectual oeuvre that has graced countless people to become closer to their faith and enjoy life under God's plan.
