'Take good care of the service of the poor. Above all, live together in great union and cordiality, loving one another in imitation of the union and life of our Lord. Pray earnestly to the Blessed Virgin, that she might be your only Mother.'

'But it was not so much the sorrows of his Passion which saddened and embittered the life of our Redeemer, as the sight of all the sins which men would commit after his death. These were the cruel executioners which made him live in continual agony, oppressed by such an overwhelming grief that pain alone would have been enough to make him die of pure sorrow. Father Lessius says that the sight alone of the ingratitude of mankind would have been sufficient to make Jesus Christ die of grief a thousand times.'

The habit to refer to the original historical sources to the greatest extent possible is a very good one!

The Glories of Mary falls into the genre of ascetical and devotional writings.

Thank you. That would explain why I could not find it. The information I had was that Alphonso Maria de Liguori was the one who, at a young age made a pact with devil to become a great lawyer, plagued by devish visions he repented by calling on  Mary then went into the preisthood.

This is why you double check your sources. Thank you very much.

'He who accepts present afflictions in the expectation of future blessings has found knowledge of the truth; and he will easily be freed from anger and remorse.'

Hello Ang!

The volume the Glories of Mary is available for free reading and download on the Saints' Books website. The closest incident that immediately appears to partly resemble what you are looking for would be in the latter part of the book where the saint discusses the Dolours of Mary, it should be an early example in that portion. It is not the saint himself who acts he is merely relating the story, St. Alphonsus Maria is a saint who is famous for relating stories from the lives and writings of other saints in his books, his writings are full of such examples.

In the particular edition on Saints' Books it would be page 534, where the passage begins, 'We read in the revelations of St. Bridget, that there was once a lord as noble by birth as he was low and sinful in his habits. He had given himself by an express compact as a slave to the devil,' etc.
