MEMORIAL OF ALPHONSUS LIGUORI, BISHOP, DOCTOR OF THE CHURCH
Walk with me

Alphonsus Liguori, the founder of the Redemptorists, favored being clear and direct; his meditations on the Way of the Cross are a good example. Though his self-deprecating style may not appeal to everyone’s tastes today, love for the suffering Christ underlies his words—a love that anyone who has made it through hard times can share with others. If you can say, “I have an idea what you’re going through” with the simple honestly that comes from experience, you may be a source of amazing strength to a suffering friend, taking the hard road with him or her, and with Christ.

TODAY'S READINGS: Jeremiah 15:10, 16-21; Matthew 13:44-46 (403). “The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure buried in a field.”
