Evangelizing through the Catholic Arts

Saint Alphonsus Liguori – Doctor of the Church

Alphonsus LigouriToday we celebrate the Feast Day of Saint Alphonsus Liguori, an 18th century Catholic priest, who founded the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer in 1732. He created this Congregation with the charism of preaching parish missions to the faithful. He believed that by evangelizing on the moral virtues, in the parish missions, he could bring souls closer to Christ. And that he did!

Saint Aphonsus Liguori taught that by embracing virtue, we grow closer to Christ. He authored several popular books informing the faithful on how to make this happen.
