ALPHONSUS LIGUORI

 

Alphonsus was a lawyer. After losing a court case due to an oversight, he left his practice and became a priest. He organized the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer (Redemptorist) to conduct missions to rural districts. He was a theologian and a popular writer on many subjects. He raised his voice against  the puritanical Jansenist heresy but also had to contend with political conflicts over the control of the Redemptorist order. He is a Doctor of the Church.
