More About Alph Ligouri, Michael Henesy & Rosemary Gallagher
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.

Udseful in RCIA May 20, 2001
Valuable insights not only for those married to Catholics, but also for others interested in learning about the Catholic Church. I will be using this book with my RCIA inquirers.
Okay, but not great May 29, 2000
This book was an enjoyable, informative read, but I thought that the excessive use of cartoons detracted from the message rather than enhancing it. The content was good for day-to-day information about how a practicing Catholic follows his or her religion, but didn't give as much theological information as I was hoping for. I was also expecting more information on how to actually work out religious differences, but in reality there are just "Two Real-Life Stories" at the very end. The stories seemed a little too canned. Finally, I felt that the tone of the book was somewhat patronizing. The dictionary of Catholic terms, however, is very useful.
extremely informative, hits the basics Sep 2, 1998
An easy to read, non-threatening style that informs without being boring. Covers lots of touchy subjects with sensitivity. Good balance of humor and seriousness, all Catholic adults would enjoy learning about their faith community through this format, one does not have to be married to benefit from this book. The Questions and Answers in each section relate to 'real life'. Excellent book, good for one's personal library.
