General Audience: The Pope explains St. Alphonsus Liguori and importance of prayer

Benedict XVI

"I greet all the English-speaking pilgrims, especially those from England and the United States. ;Today the Church celebrates the feast of Saint Alphonsus de’ Liguori, the founder of the Redemptorists, a great moral theologian and a master of prayer. Saint Alphonsus teaches us the beauty of daily prayer, in which we open our minds and hearts to the Lord’s presence and receive the grace to live wisely and well. ;By his example and intercession, may you and your families come to know God’s saving love and experience his abundant blessings!"
