Volume 03 of 22 in the Aesthetical Works of St. Alphonsus de Liguori, first published in 1886. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori was an Italian Catholic bishop, spiritual writer, scholastic philosopher and theologian, and founder of the Redemptorists, an influential religious congregation. He was canonized in 1839 and proclaimed a Doctor of the Church in 1871. In this third volume of his "Aesthetical Works", Liguori implores to the reader of the necessity, power, and conditions of prayer. The Doctor declares prayer to be “the most necessary defense against our enemies.” With references from every corner of Christendom, including Sacred Scripture, the saints, and the Holy Fathers, this powerful book is ideal for personal reflection. The saint writes to alert the reader to the very real fact of their own mortality, recommends them to repentance, prayer, and fasting, and to remind them that our salvation will be founded on prayer. He quotes St. Thomas Aquinas in saying: “After Baptism, continual prayer is necessary to man in order to enter Heaven.” Reproduced from older English editions, this non-facsimile 2014 edition has been faithfully edited (with 1,250 footnotes) to provide a clean and trim appearance of the original text and to continue the proliferation of a great spiritual work.
