August 1 – Saint Alphonsus Liguori

Alphonsus Liguori

Holy Spirit, Saint Alphonsus Liguori was a civil and a canon lawyer, and he made it a point to always attend Mass before heading to court.  His promised that he would never waste a moment of his life, and held fast to it for over 90 years, even when his rheumatism hurt so much that he could barely move.  I ask him to pray for my use of time.  O Lord, show me how to dedicate each moment to You.  Help me to examine each activity—the work I do for employers, the ministries I do for the Church, the time I spend with my family, and my leisure time.  May it all be used to glorify You and increase my holiness.  Saint Alphonsus, pray for me.  Amen.

QUOTES by Saint Alphonsus Liguori

When we see a sinner in tribulation in this life, we may infer that God wishes to have mercy on him in the next, and that he exchanges eternal for temporal chastisement.

God is faithful: He will not permit you to be tempted above your strength. And if of yourself you have not strength to overcome evil, ask it from God and He will give it to you.

No man has ever placed his trust in God and has been abandoned. He that prays with confidence obtains whatever he asks for.
