St Alphonsus Liguori Sunday Sermons
He was born in Naples to a noble family who directed his life into law. After earning his degree, he led a very successful law practice until at the age of 27 when he gave it up to become a priest. He was ordained at age 30. He became a minister to the poor, and founded a number of "Evening Chapels". These chapels were managed by youth, and became centers of prayer and piety, preaching, community, social activities and education. He would live to see 72 such centers founded with 10,000 members.
In 1729 he started to travel as a missionary to the poor. Later in 1732 he would found his own congregation. In 1762 he was appointed bishop against he will. Throughout his life he wrote many sermons and books on the faith. He also reformed the seminary in his diocese and suspended priests who celebrated the Mass in less than fifteen minutes. He also sold the wealth of his office to give the poor. He died in 1787 and was canonized a saint in 1839 and declared a doctor of the church.
