In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Dear Lord, we thank You for giving us St. Aloysius Gonzaga as an example of holiness.
Help us to imitate the love of You that he showed throughout his life,
beginning in his youth. St. Aloysius Gonzaga, you began your journey to
holiness when you were very young. As you were recovering from an illness, you turned your attention to prayer and study of the saints. From then on, you grew in devotion to God.
Please bring my petitions before the throne of God!
You were committed to chastity, and you longed to serve God as a missionary.
Though you were still young, you did all you could
to prepare yourself for a life of service to God.
Pray for me, that I may always seek to serve God in my life.
Pray that I may do all I can to serve God in whatever ways He calls me to. Please also pray for (mention your intentions here).
St. Aloysius Gonzaga, pray for us! In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
