Untitled[edit]

I agree that Liguori is an important character. I have come to this article looking for neutral information but was disappointed: the article reads like an apology and dwells largely on an adoring view. Assorted links could help to look up what is meant by a Catholic Saint, a Doctor of the Catholic Church, a Catholic "spiritual writer", a Catholic Congregation, etc. In the Catholic Encyclopaedia Liguori is presented in extenso with no pretense to be neutral; the corresponding external link is missing. --Lupo Manaro 09:52, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

Saint Alphonsus' cassock[edit]

I'm curious, on some pictures of Saint Alphonsus, why are his cassock and mozzetta blue? I'm pretty sure that blue was never a colour for cassocks -- only white, red, purple and black were permitted. I thought it might be the colour of Saint Alphonsus' order's habit, but I don't think the CSSRs ever had blue. Saint John Neumann was a bishop too, and all I've seen him in was either a black cassock (I think it's a Jesuit-style cassock?) and the black Bishop's cassock.J.J.

Complete name[edit]

Alphonsus Mary Antony John Cosmas Damian Michael Gaspard de' Liguori ...should his complete name be in the article? It's in the italian wikipedia.

Case of bilocation[edit]

Why isnt the incidence of bilocation, reported here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ mentioned in this page? It seems like such a miracle should be mentioned someplace in the article.
