“Just as a mother finds pleasure in taking her little child on her lap, there to feed and caress him, in like manner our loving God shows His fondness for His beloved souls who have given themselves entirely to Him and have placed all their hope in His goodness.” ~Saint Alphonsus Liguori
Prayer: Lord our God, you called Saint Alphonsus to serve your Church by pointing to the ways of holiness and by leading others into your service through the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer, which he founded. Send us always wise and holy teachers, and guide us by their light, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
