St. Aloysius - Banner BAN768
Artwork by the Benedictine Sisters of Turvey
Feast day: 21st June.
St. Aloysius Gonzaga, Jesuit Priest, (1568-1591).
A contemporary of St.
Charles Borromeo (from whom he received his first communion) and St. Robert
Bellarmine who was his spiritual director.
He died as a young man
caring for plague victims. In 1729 Pope Benedict XIII declared him patron saint
of students and in 1926 Pope Pius XI named him patron of all Christian youth.
Because of the nature of his death, showing compassion and courage in the face
of an incurable disease, he is also regarded as patron of AIDS sufferers and
He is pictured with
lilies showing his innocence and chastity.
