In this 250 page book, Saint Alphonsus de Liguori (1696-1787), bishop and Doctor of the Church, develops the celebrated text of St. Paul on the qualities of true love in 1 Cor. 13:4-8 ("Love is patient, love is kind...."). He explains in thirteen chapters the principal virtues that we ought to practice and the defects that we ought to avoid in order to render to our Lord love for love, and by doing so to attain eternal life. This book was originally published in 1768 and was described by one reviewer as "One of the masterpieces of St. Alphonsus, a book that speaks to all hearts...a very highly-prized and best-selling work." The editor has modernized the language for the benefit of the contemporary reader and has included the authors footnotes, including his scripture quotes in Latin and quotes from the saints. The book also includes an index. Also included is a poem by the editor, "Love is...": Love is patient, love is kind, All selfish ways it leaves behind. Love is never harsh or rude; It governs every changing mood (etc.) If you like this book or any other of the books Ive written or edited, please leave a positive review, so that others may profit spiritually by them for the glory of God. May He bless and protect you and yours. See my other great Catholic books, and four others Ive written on Amazon. Search "Darrell Wright".
