The author: St. Alphonsus Liguori was born in 1696 to Neapolitan nobility at Marianella, Italy. He became a lawyer after going through law school at the age of sixteen, but later decided to join the Oratory of St. Philip Neri as a seminarian. He was ordained in 1726, when he was thirty. The homilies he gave had the special ability of converting those who had fallen away from the Faith. He also founded the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer, and authored such works as The Glories of Mary, The True Spouse of Jesus Christ, Attaining Salvation, The Blessed Virgin Mary, Preparation for Death, What Will Hell Be Like?, and The Way of the Cross. After being a bishop for over a decade, St. Alphonsus Liguori died on the first of August, 1787. He was canonized by Pope Gregory XVI in 1839, and declared a Doctor of the Church in 1871. His feast is celebrated on August 1.
