St Alphonsus Liguori

One I the reasons I think there isn't much philosophy written which is easy to understand is that most philosophers never had to teach CCD!

Alphonsus Liguori was highly educated and from an aristocratic family, but spent much of his life teaching and ministering to the poor of Naples. This may be the reason so much of his writing is accessible and still widely read today.
