Besides being a renowned moral theologian, St. Alphonsus Liguori has left to the Redemptorist religious family that he founded, and indeed to the wider Church, a rich heritage of spiritual writings. Among these writings is a substantial body of poems, hymns, and works of art that focus on the birth of Jesus, his Passion and on his abiding presence among us in the Eucharist. The love of God, the beauty of solitude, dialogue between Jesus and the loving soul, and the loveliness of Mary also feature prominently.
This full-color book contains many of his poems in a fresh English translation, alongside the original Italian and Neapolitan texts. Paintings by St. Alphonsus and other works of art are also included to invite the reader into deeper prayer and contemplation.
The poems and artwork found in this book make it an ideal source for personal meditation and a very attractive gift book, perfect for every Catholic.
