In the Saint-Joseph chapel, you will find on your right a work by the painter Ernest Wante (1872-1960), entitled: “The entry of Saint Alphonse into Ciorani”. Ciorani was one of the first foundations of the Redemptorist congregation and is located in what was then called the Kingdom of Naples. The Redemptorists were a missionary work, and most of the year they were on the road giving missions, even in the smallest villages, and saving many souls. The painting represents the return of one of these missions.

Saint Alphonse de Liguori (1696-1787), was one of the great evangelizers of the poor. His great spirit of apostolate and charity led him to found a new religious congregation, the Redemptorists (Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer), to work for the evangelization of the masses. Having become bishop of Sainte-Agathe-des-Goths, near Naples, he died in his nineties. His great works of moral theology made him proclaim Doctor of the Church. He is the patron saint of confessors.
