Oil Dedicated to St Alphonsus Liguori (Patron for Arthritis)

Oil Dedicated to St Alphonsus Liguori (Patron for Arthritis) from A Blessed Call To Love, Ireland.

Saint Alphonsus Liguori, the Patron Saint for Arthritis, was a remarkable Italian Catholic bishop, theologian, and founder of the Redemptorists, a religious congregation dedicated to the spiritual welfare of the poor and marginalized. Born on September 27, 1696, in Marianella, near Naples, Italy, he lived during a time of great social and religious change in Europe.

From an early age, Alphonsus displayed exceptional intellectual prowess and a deep devotion to God. He earned a doctorate in law at the age of 16 but soon felt a strong calling to the priesthood. He was ordained in 1726 and became a renowned preacher and moral theologian.

One of Saint Alphonsus’ significant contributions to the Catholic Church was his work on moral theology. His moral theology writings, particularly the “Moral Theology,” became foundational texts for seminarians and priests. His approach emphasized the compassion and mercy of God, providing a balanced perspective on moral matters.

Saint Alphonsus’ deep empathy for the suffering of others is particularly relevant to his status as the Patron Saint for Arthritis. He himself suffered from painful rheumatism, which gave him firsthand experience of the affliction. This personal struggle endeared him to those suffering from arthritis and made him a compassionate intercessor for their relief.

In 1762, he  consecrated as the Bishop of Sant’Agata dei Goti. Even in this role, he continued to advocate for the poor and known for his pastoral care. He wrote extensively on spirituality, devotion to the Blessed Sacrament, and the Virgin Mary.

Saint Alphonsus Liguori passed away on August 1, 1787, and canonized as a saint in 1839. His life and works continue to inspire countless Catholics and people suffering from arthritis, who turn to him in prayer for relief and solace. Saint Alphonsus Liguori remains a symbol of compassion, faith, and dedication to the service of God and humanity.
