Alphonsus Liguori was an Italian theologian, scholastic philosopher and Catholic bishop. He was the pioneer of a new aspect of Christianity called 'Moral Theology'. At a time when the Catholic Church and clergies were accused by many of unethical practices, Alphonsus made his community and nation proud by his unconditional services to the needy. Though he could have led a comfortable life as a lawyer, Alphonsus realized at a very young age that leading a materialistic life is of no use. Liguori soon confessed to his parents that he wanted to change his career path and explore theology. His most significant contribution to the Italian society was introducing an association of chapels called 'Evening Chapels', which was dedicated towards offering services, such as education and imparting religious values to the underprivileged youth. Alphonsus was a multi-faceted personaliy; he was a musician, painter, poet and author at the same time. The tales of Alphonsus’ great deeds continue to be popular even till date. The man’s life is an example which many humanitarians follow.
