Biography: Aloysius (born Luigi Gonzaga) was born in the region of Lombardy, Italy. He makes a great example for our youth considering that he faced the same kinds of challenges they do today including: peer pressure, struggles with remaining pure, and difficulties in choosing and pursuing a vocation. Despite being very rough and worldly people, and despite many arguments with his parents, Saint Aloysius maintained a pure heart and became a Jesuit priest.
Prayer: Lord God, help us to be like our brother, St. Aloysius Gonzaga, who gave up honor and riches to serve you. Make us strong, inspired by the spirit of this world, so that we may seek your glory in all things.
