    1. Saint Alfonso Liguori was an Italian Catholic Bishop, spiritual writer, theologian, and founder of the Redemptorists, an influential religious order He was canonized in 1839 by Pope Gregory XVI and declared a Doctor of the Church.

    2. This book is a wonderful explanation of the glories of Mother Mary. It is one of the most in-depth writings ever written on Mary and includes information about her power of intercession, her miracles, her sorrows, her virtues, an explanation of her titles given by the Church, etc. It is sad that protestants so viciously attack the Catholic faith-which is true Christianity-especially on the teachings of the Eucharist, the Papacy, and on honoring Mary the Mother of God. The protestants are wrong w [...]

    3. I haven't read the entire book but ive read a few pages of it and i feel so disgusted because of the blasphemous statements that are repeatedly uttered by the author who continues to debunk the sovereignty and the eternal love of the God of the universe Jesus Christ. Jesus loved us so much that he died for all our sins. And the bible clearly says that God is the refuge of sinners. And Jesus spent most of his time in ministry reaching out lovingly to sinners so that they will repent and enter int [...]

    4. This version of The Glories of Mary is a very readable edition of a classic book about Mary by St. Alphonsus and was adapted by Rev. John Duffy, C.S.S.R It focus on the privileges and intercessory power of Mary is now available to today's Catholics in a form that is a joy for them to read. This book features large print. Leather hardcover. 189 pages.I really enjoy this book and have used it before bed time, it brings you closer to both Jesus and Mary in a deeper way. Mother Angelica has talked a [...]

    5. The holy man in a fittingly scholastic style, develops and extols the many virtues of devotion to the Blessed Virgin. However, spiritual insights are more like solitary flowers, rather than a bouquet in this work. An excellent meditation on Mary, but it didn't ring deep chords like I had hoped.

    6. Few works have done more for opening eyes to the vital role our Blessed Mother has to offer in our salvation. The Glories of Mary, along with True Devotion, should be compulsory catechesis for all Catholics.

    7. WellI "listened" to it. See, I used my Mac to turn the text into an audio book.If you want the church fathers' perspective from this eminent and holy Doctor of the Church, this is for you.

    8. I loved this book! My favorite part was that it wasn't just a litany of how great our Blessed Mother is but it included examples of how she's aided those with even slight devotion to her. I also enjoyed that the prayers at the end of each section wrapped up what each section was about. Finally, I love that Liguori reiterates throughout the book that Mary is not equal by any means to Jesus. Rather, she is the guide to deeper love of him. My favorite analogy was that while Jesus is the sun, Mary i [...]

    9. This lengthy tome is one of the masterpieces of St. Alphonsus Ligouri, noted civil and canon lawyer of the 16th century and one of the great theologians of the Catholic Reformation. In this work, St. Alphonsus tackles the issue of Mary. Why should Christians honor Mary? What is to be gained by it? Why were the Protestants wrong when they uniformly rejected devotion to Mary, and why are Catholics ill advised to follow their lead? In this book St. Alphonsus addresses these questions headlong. He s [...]

    10. What can I even say? I thought I had a strong devotion to the Blessed Mother before starting this life-changing book. Now I feel so much closer to her, the Mother of Christ! St. Alphonsus' love for the Holy Virgin penetrates every page, making one stop and stare at a wall with one's mouth agape for a good ten minutes after reading only a single sentence. I have nearly every page "dog-eared" and many paragraphs highlighted so I can go back and read about the amazing, tender mercy of God, Who gave [...]

    11. Excelente libroEste libro te adentra en el amor de María y por medio de él descubres el amor de Dios. Importante lleva el amor a los demás.

    12. HORRIBLE BOOK!!This book invests the Virgin Mary with god-like powers, and makes her more powerful, more influential, more sympathetic than God, and than Jesus Christ Himself. The Muslim concept of the Trinity is Father-Mother- and Son. Looking at this book it is plainly obvious, very plainly evident how they came upon that incorrect assumption. The Trinity consists of Father-Son-and Holy Ghost. Mary has nothing to do with it!I could give a far more detailed review of this blasphemous and hereti [...]

    13. What can I say? It just doesn't get any better than this if you're devoted to Our Lady. I had bought a smaller hardcover version of this one 20+ years ago at my local Catholic bookstore and read it a zillion times. By far my favorite Marian book. Imagine my delight when I discovered years later my small book was just part of this huge original. Wow!! I couldn't buy this big one fast enough. It does not disappoint. If you're a follower of Our Lady, this book is a MUST!!

    14. Deo gratias!Esta obra es elemental para los que quieran conocer, seguir y caminar con María Santísima al corazón de su Hijo. San Alfonso María de Ligorio logra compilar y explicar de manera clara, cómo es que María se convierte en nuestra Madre y Abogada, además de por qué es ella la más hermosa de todas las criaturas.

    15. The most beautiful MaryThe author provides an excellent biography of Blessed Mary while giving an amazingly simple explanations of many facets of the Catholic religious beliefs. I recommend this book to all readers.

    16. This book makes us grow in devotion to the Holy Mother of God, Mary. Full of historical facts that have made clearly the solicitudeof Our Lady for their children. Very advisable to read to children.
