More About Alphonsus Liguori
St. Alphonsus Liguori was born in 1696 to Neapolitan nobility at Marianella, Italy. He became a recognizable lawyer after going through law school at the age of sixteen, but later decided to leave law in favor of giving his salvation more attention. Alphonsus joined the Oratory of St. Philip Neri as a seminarian and was ordained in 1726, when he was thirty. The homilies he gave had the special ability of converting those who had fallen away from the faith. He also founded the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer, and authored such works as The Glories of Mary, The True Spouse of Jesus Christ, Attaining Salvation, The Blessed Virgin Mary, Preparation for Death Abridged, What Will Hell Be Like?, The Twelve Steps to Holiness and Salvation, and The Way of the Cross. After being a bishop for over a decade, St. Alphonsus Liguori died on the first of August, 1787. He was canonized by Pope Gregory XVI in 1839, and declared a Doctor of the Church in 1871. His feast is celebrated on August 1.
Alphonsus Liguori was born in 1696 and died in 1787.

A Catholic Treasure Mar 28, 2007
If you are looking for great spiritual reading, you just can't do better than St. Alphonsus Liguori. And for all of his fantastic writings, you just can't do better than The Glories of Mary. Profound meditative fodder abounds on every page of this book! The Hail Holy Queen prayer, while beautiful, is a little obscure and hard to understand in our day, but you can count on St. Alphonsus to make this beautiful prayer fill your heart with love for Our Lady. He also writes about the Sorrows of Mary, the Virtues of Mary, the Marian Feasts, and also some prayers and special devotions to the Blessed Mother. This book is a treasure!
Beautiful book, but not what I hoped for Jun 16, 2006
This book is a great source of meditation on the BVM. Unfortunately, it is an abridgment of Liguori's full work. Nevertheless, it does not disappoint, and provides a useful and complete mediation upon the Hail Holy Queen.
Fundamental teachings about Saint Mary Feb 6, 2003
This is the most complete book I've ever read about the Mother of God. Saint Alphonsus Liguori analyses with great detail and precision, but always using a perfectly clear language, the decisive role of Saint Mary in the salvation of human souls and her essential contribution to keep them away from sin and eternal condemnation. It is deplorable that the post-Vatican II modernist Church has almost forgotten these fundamental teachings.
Excellent Read for Those Devoted to Mary Aug 13, 2001
This is one of the richest and most vivid Marian texts I have read in a long time. I highly recommend this text to anyone interested in Marian theology or anyone devoted to the Rosary and Marian piety. It is a classic.
It includes meditations on the mysteries of the Rosary, sermons on the primary liturgical feasts of Mary and prayers to Mary. It is thorough. Each expositional section concludes with a prayer and example.
If you enjoyed Thomas A Kempis' Imitations of Christ, you will love this book.
