Young Aloysius’s family wanted him to be an aristocratic soldier. But he wanted to serve God. So they tried to set him up as a bishop. But he wanted to be a missionary, and joined the Jesuits, renouncing his fortune. Although sickness prevented him from ever going abroad, he still lived out the Christian ideal: God above all else. St. Aloysius Gonzaga, patron of Christian youth, pray for the young people here at Holy Rosary!
