 Our Description

 

St. Alphonsus Liguori

 

Hail Holy Queen! is the first and best part of Alphonsus Liguori's masterpiece, The Glories of Mary, one of the greatest Catholic books ever written. St. Alphonsus spent many years collecting the best material on Mary he could find-from the writings of Saints, Doctors of the Church and other holy authors.

However, this book will not be appreciated by those sentimentalists who think that just about everybody goes to Heaven. But anyone who takes seriously Our Lord's many warnings about Hell will be overjoyed to read the amazing statements in this book on Our Lady's God-given role in securing our salvation, with its remarkable stories of miracles and graces obtained through her.

Based on the words of the Salve Regina-the "Hail Holy Queen"-this book explains why Mary is "our life, our sweetness and our hope." It plainly demonstrates the Blessed Virgin Mary's immense love and great mercy toward us and her powerful intercession on our behalf, showing that devotion to Mary is a most certain mark of eternal salvation. It even demonstrates that mortal sinners have a special claim upon her and that she is powerful to help them regain the state of grace. Moreover, it shows how the Holy Ghost has mystically hidden many remarkable secrets about Mary within the pages of Sacred Scripture, where they are to be discovered only by those who are of the True Faith. Also included are favorite prayers and devotions to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Hail Holy Queen!, therefore, is a uniquely consoling book that gives profound encouragement and a firm hope for eternal victory through Mary, the Mother of God, to all who implore her help-because Mary loves us dearly and can obtain for us from her divine Son anything she asks.

Imrpimatur: Michael Augustine, Archbishop of New York, October 10, 1896

Profile

    Born to the nobility, Alphonsus was a child prodigy; he became extremely well-educated, and received his doctorate in law from the University of Naples at age 16. He had his own legal practice by age 21, and was soon one of the leading lawyers in Naples, though he never attended court without having attended Mass first. He loved music, could play the harpsichord, and often attended the opera, though he frequently listened without bothering to watch the over-done staging. As he matured and learned more and more of the world, he liked it less and less, and finally felt a call to religious life. He declined an arranged marriage, studied theology, and was ordained at age 29.

    Preacher and home missioner around Naples. Noted for his simple, clear, direct style of preaching, and his gentle, understanding way in the confessional. Writer on asceticism, theology, and history; master theologian. He was often opposed by Church officials for a perceived laxity toward sinners, and by government officials who opposed anything religious. Founded the Redemptoristines women‘s order in Scala in 1730. Founded the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer (Liguorians; Redemptorists) at Scala, Italy in 1732.

    Appointed bishop of the diocese of Sant’Agata de’ Goti, Italy by Pope Clement XIII in 1762. Worked to reform the clergy and revitalize the faithful in a diocese with a bad reputation. He was afflicted with severe rheumatism, and often could barely move or raise his chin from his chest. In 1775 he resigned his see due to ill health, and went into what he thought would be a < href="prayer">prayerful retirement.

    In 1777 the royal government threatened to disband his Redemptorists, claiming that they were covertly carrying on the work of the Jesuits, who had been suppressed in 1773. Calling on his knowledge of the Congregation, his background in thelogy, and his skills as a lawyer, Alphonsus defended the Redemptorists so well that they obtained the king‘s approval. However, by this point Alphonsus was nearly blind, and was tricked into giving his approval to a revised Rule for the Congregation, one that suited the king and the anti-clerical government. When Pope Pius VI saw the changes, he condemned it, and removed Alphonsus from his position as leader of the Order. This caused Alphonsus a crisis in confidence and faith that took years to overcome. However, by the time of his death he had returned to faith and peace.

    Alphonsus vowed early to never to waste a moment of his life, and he lived that way for over 90 years. Declared a Doctor of the Church by Pope Pius IX in 1871.

    When he was bishop, one of Alphonsus’s priests led a worldly life, and resisted all attempts to change. He was summoned to Alphonsus, and at the entrance to the bishop‘s study he found a large crucifix laid on the threshold. When the priest hesitated to step in, Alphonsus quietly said, “Come along, and be sure to trample it underfoot. It would not be the first time you have placed Our Lord beneath your feet.”
