Liguorian Celebrates Its First Hundred Years!
Written by Editor
In honor of our first centennial, we want to honor our readers—our Liguorian family. You’re the reason we publish this magazine, and you’re uppermost in our minds as we plan each issue and develop each article. We want to say thank you for 100 years of inspiration and support!
The first issue of Liguorian was published in March 1913—a century ago. A group of Redemptorists who taught in a major seminary in Wisconsin, began a magazine to spread a little zeal. Liguorian conveys a consistent joyful message of God’s plentiful redemption. In its tone and selection of material, it communicates a timely pastoral message, employs the principal elements of Catholic spirituality and helps readers navigate their day-to-day lives assisted by their faith.
In recognition of our centennial, we received quite a few congratulatory letters from organizations who support our mission. Following are a couple pieces of this special correspondence. Please join us as we celebrate this milestone and look towards the future.
