Lent and Easter Wisdom from St. Alphonsus Liguori
By: Maurice J. Nutt, C.Ss.R.
Description: Saint Alphonsus Liguori, founder of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer, was a musician, painter, and one of the most prolific writers of his time. A humble man who deeply loved Jesus, he is recognized as a doctor of the Church and patron saint of confessors, moral theologians, and those suffering from arthritis.
This addition to seasonal meditation books provides Scripture readings for the seasons of Lent and Easter and pairs them with a daily selection of cherished writings by Saint Alphonsus Liguori, whose words still find meaning in our lives today. Devoted to prayer and the passion of Christ the Redeemer, Alphonsus demonstrates how we can live our lives more fully for Jesus.
During our Lenten journey, through the words of Saint Alphonsus and the daily Lenten actions, we are offered practical ways to follow the example of Saint Alphonsus and his abundant love for our crucified Savior, who died and rose from the dead to create us anew.
