Neeson reads the Introduction and prayers for each of the 14 Stations of the Cross written by St. Alphonsus Maria Liguori. The 18th-century Italian saint is a doctor of the Church and founded the Redemptorists.
"I had heard about the Redemptorists and their missionary work in the Amazon rain forest of Brazil and in the slums of Lagos and Ibadan, Nigeria," Liam Neeson said in a statement released by the order. "I was moved to help because the Redemptorists are living the Gospel message in some of the poorest parts of the world, offering hope to families who have been forgotten or abandoned."
The CD was produced by Ray and Theresa Herrmann, co-founders of Little Lamb Music.
Ray Herrmann is a Grammy-award winning musician who has played with and arranged music for such names as Diana Ross, Chicago, Bob Dylan, Santana, LeeAnn Rimes and Stevie Wonder. Ray is also in the house band on American Idol.
Proceeds from the sale of the CDs support the work of the Redemptorist missions in Brazil and Nigeria.
