Saint Alphonsus Attends Law School

St. Alphonsus entered law school when he was sixteen years old and became a renowned lawyer.  When St. Alphonsus was twenty-seven, he no longer felt that the profession of law was for him.  He wrote to a friend,
"My friend, our profession is too full of difficulties and dangers; we lead an unhappy life and run risk of dying an unhappy death. For myself, I will quit this career, which does not suit me; for I wish to secure the salvation of my soul.”

Saint Alphonsus Studies for the Priesthood

St. Alphonsus began teaching in the heart of Naples where destitute people lived in the slums of the city.  He founded the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer whose purpose was to instruct the homeless, destitute, and poor in the ways of God.  St. Alphonsus dedicated himself to teaching the poor.  A new order of nuns founded by Sister Maria Celeste worked along with St. Alphonsus Liguori.
