Victories of the Martyrs by St. Alphonsus de Liguori

share on Facebook



"This Son, so cruelly executed, was our loving Redeemer Jesus; and this mother was the Blessed Virgin Mary; who, for the love she bore us, was willing to see Him sacrificed to divine justice by the barbarity of men. This great torment, then, which Mary endured for us - a torment that was more than a thousand deaths - deserves both our compassion and our gratitude. If we can make no other return for so much love, at least let us give a few moments this day to consider the greatness of the sufferings by which Mary became the Queen of martyrs; for the sufferings of her great martyrdom exceeded those of all the martyrs; being, in the first place, the longest in point of duration; and in the second place, the greatest in point of intensity." - St. Alphonsus de Liguori

Imprimatur 1953, 458 pages + appendix

It was printed for wide distribution at a low cost so there may be a few nicks on the brittle cover and yellowing of pages but the lessons from St. Alphonsus de Liguori are timeless.

Only a few copies available!
