Founder, Bishop, and Doctor.
Of all the Doctors of the Church, non has more to offer the modern world, with its atheism and materialism, its secularism and anti-clericalism, its coldness and indifference toward religion, than St. Alphonsus. He is a source of instructions to all; as a man and a saint, he is a constant inspiration. In him the love of God and the indefatigable exercise of all his powers in the service of that love during the ninety-one years of his life unite to constitute a glowing example of sainthood for modern times.
